These unusual beads are individually carved from fossilized Stegodon, an ancient animal from the Proboscidea family. These trunk-bearing mammal creatures inhabited areas near the Solo River in central Java from 11.6 mya to late Pleistocene, with some records suggesting they may have survived up until four millennium ago. The name for stegodon comes from the Greek word "stegein," which roughly translates to "roofed tooth," a testament to the creature's distinctive molars. These special beads measure approximately 9-12mm in diameter each, with a hole size of 2mm. Each strand measures approximately 24 inches in length, and includes approximately 50 beads each. Bead shape will vary between round to cylindrical. Please let us know in advance if you have any specific needs. Own a piece of mammal history with these fun treasures! Limited supply available.

    Fascinating stones!

    Large and in charge! It's amazing to realize what these beads are - fossilized dinosaur beads! How cool is that! Though not exactly sparkling, they are interesting and I am envisioning the designs I will incorporate these into. Quick delivery! I've been satisfied with all my purchases from Bead Chest thus far!

    Beautiful and Earthy

    I used the stegodon beads as the marker beads for my 8mm bodhi seed mala . I’m more than happy with the end result.

    Pretty Cream Beads

    These are smooth and a deep cream color, the whole size is small, so check for compatible findings.
