Prehistoric Stegodon Beads
We carry Fossilized Stegodon Bone Beads and Fossilized Stegodon Tusk Beads. Stegodons are a sister group to the great mammoths that lived during the Pliocene and Pleistocene periods. This particular bead material is from Java, and thought to be from about 12,000 BC.
Each strand is unique, and imperfections in the fossil material is normal. Though the beads are round-ish, they can be rounder, barrel-shaped, and even a bit squished. Though the exact number varies by strand, most average between 50-60 beads per strand. Beads can be as small as 10mm x 8mm or as large as 14mm x 14mm. Tell us what you’re looking for and we will see if our strands match your needs.

A beautiful crystal and great quality. Packaged with care and creativity. Shipping was immediate. A joy all around. Will absolutely purchase my crystals here again.Celestite Review
These are my first lingams. When I first noticed them in a rock shop long ago I ignored them, oblivious and clueless to their origin and story. Only when I learned of their amazing history, I went back, only to find them gone. So I came to you! And here they are, these beautiful lingams with such magic around them! The small one you gifted me with has the greatest energy of them all! And one will be for a friend who just got into collecting stones. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! 🙂Lingam Review
