Elephant tooth fossil Indonesia

Recommended Posts

Soet

I bought these (in Solo Indonesia), what the seller told me, to be fossils of an elephant. Now I am wondering if this is fake or real? They are heavy, sound solid, more or less kinda stone. 

 

 What do you think ?

It resembles a juvenile Gomphothere tooth to me.

Nice suggestion! I never heard of this type of elephant before but it indeed looks very comparable.

 

I also posted another fossil I bought, they mentioned a fossil elephant tusk. Maybe you have a suggestion there as well?

This is probably correct, given that it is from Indonesia.
