Mammoth Molar Tooth is a genuine mammoth fossil dating back to the last ice age (10,000-40,000 BP). The material is uniquely beautiful due to its three-part layer structure of dentin, cementum and enamel, but also more difficult to process because of the different hardness of the layers. The mammoth molars are not petrified, but do contain natural minerals and are harder to work than non-fossil material. Mammoth Molar Tooth is the hardest of the three mammoth fossils because of its inherent enamel plates. Diamond tools are recommended, but tools for hard steel can be used at low process speed instead if diamond tools are not available. We also recommend saturating the surface of the material with cyanoacrylics (Super Glue) after grinding followed by additional fine sanding and polishing for a smother and stronger result.
