Mystery Object Embedded In Platybelodon Tooth Root


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I obtained this Platybelodon tooth from a fellow collector. I believe it might be of Chinese origin.

There is a textured gray object embedded in the root/jaw bone. It seems to be much more solid than the surrounding brittle white bone.

Any guesses as to what the gray object may be?

Any input is appreciated!

Sincerely,

Jay
