Woolly mammoth ivory cufflinks. No joke. Literally from a woolly mammoth’s tusk. As in, it died, was fossilized, sat in the ground for ten thousand years and then you put it on your, your husband’s, your boyfriend’s, your dad’s or your brother’s sleeve cuff. And in so doing, the world gained a new coolest person.
Ok, but seriously, even though I am so excited about these, I need to settle down and explain them. Made from woolly mammoth tusk ivory, at least ten thousand years old. The face of the cufflinks has a layer of fossilization about a millimeter thick. Under that is the bony enamel of the not-so-fossilized tooth (tusk). The fossilized layer has had that enamel replaced by minerals, giving the tusk exterior distinctive mossy and olive green hues, with ocher, rusty red, white and tans, depending on which minerals were present in the soil surrounding the tusk.
This is an incredibly rare item. Once all the woolly mammoth ivory is gone then it’s gone unless we figured out how to clone them. That means this material is limited and precious. Don’t miss an opportunity to participate in a little bit of pre-history. This is an animal that many of our ancestors depended on for food, rainment, warmth, bone tools, ivory and construction materials. Show your appreciation by proudly displaying the use of this wonderful creature on your clothing just as your ancient forefathers did.
This has been lovingly cut, sanded and polished by hand to make it the perfect souvenir of the last ice age and perfect for any guy who likes studying prehistoric times, cavemen, Neanderthals, ancient animals, elephants, fossilization, biology, geology or is just a general nerd! I think this also makes an excellent gift idea for birthdays and Christmas. Where else will you find something this special and unique?
