This Cave Bear tooth is cast from an actual molar I found on a trip into British Columbia's beautiful interior. The tooth was found in a cave, and once belonged to the mighty Cave Bear, a species which became extinct around 27,000 years ago. That means this tooth is old.

Really, really old.

But the crazy thing is you'd never know. The tooth was in perfect condition, the petrified enamel completely intact and every detail immaculately preserved. Fortunately the tooth survived the casting process, and I can now offer this beautiful bronze replica, which captures every minute detail of the original. I really love how this piece turned out, every fissure of the roots, every peak and valley of the the crown perfectly captured. Even the root canal can be seen in all its glory.

A vegetarian (perhaps, some evolutionary biologists think, the reason for this huge animal's ultimate demise), the cave bear would no doubt have needed huge molars like this to chew through those prehistoric bushes.

Bad day to be a prehistoric bush when this guy was around.

This tooth is big, no doubt about it. Measuring just over 1" high and 1" wide, this molar would have made quite a bite. I've hung this tooth on a 24" gunmetal chain - if you'd like a different length, or different chain, just let me know.

Like all my jewelry, this tooth is cast in the finest jewelers bronze and polished and finished entirely by hand. Finally, a special process is applied to the piece to stop it from tarnishing - this is one tooth that will look after itself.
