stegodon-bone-beads

Prehistoric Stegodon Beads

We carry Fossilized Stegodon Bone Beads and Fossilized Stegodon Tusk Beads. Stegodons were a sister group to the great Woolly Mammoths that once roamed 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 barrel-shaped, and even a bit squished. The number of beads varies by strand, most average between 50-60 beads per. Beads can be as small as 8mm or as large as 14mm.  A strand of bone is $47, and a strand of the tusk is $80.

Tell us what you’re looking for, and we will see if our strands match your needs.

  • 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!!! 🙂
