Not sure? Fossilized Bone or Mineral?!

Recommended Posts

I found this piece this past weekend. I’m not sure what it is..? Possibly fossilized bone but the consistency is so hard it looks more like a mineral to me? The middle is a beautiful tan, almost shiny metallic color at the right angle. Anyone know what it is?!

Looks like it could be a piece of tusk, nut need better pictures of the ends to be sure.

If it weren't so darn long I'd say a piece of Mastodon tooth. But the length is throwing me off.

Could be tusk ( incisor), I just can't see it that well.

Could we get pics of the other end & a closer, well lit one of the 3rd pic please? Also, measurements can help as well.

I have found several worn whale teeth that look similar.

It looks like a partial tooth, to me.
