I found a Mastadon tooth yesterday while walking a creek looking for Indian artifacts I need help preserving this correctly.

it looks relatively stabel, but I would recomend treating it with paraloid B-72

I use it on all my Pleistocene vertebrates.

Have a look at these threads and replies for other methods some of us have tried. @Harry Pristis‘s “about me” page is full of useful information on preserving fossils. Make sure you click on the white lettering in the black bar on top of each thread to go to the exact comments.:D

Nice find are you sure it needs preserving?

Did it out of the water ?

Whoa horsey, what nice bright white enamel.  How about a POTM vote for this specimen?

I have looked into it and it seems like paraloidi b72 is the best but where can I find it??

Perhaps you'll want to buy in bulk, but there are smaller quantities on a popular auction site. I purchased mine from the top US seller.
