Authentic Fossilized Bison tooth measures 3.5” long by 1 1/4” long. Black horn bead accents authentic pipe stone beads. This is a very heavy necklace. Buckskin ties you can adjust the length by tying it tighter or looser. Red ochre paint had been placed on the front of the tooth to let the symbol shine.
Bison latifrons, also known as the giant bison or long-horned bison, is an extinct species of bison that lived in North America during the Pleistocene. These teeth are anywhere from 20,000-30,000 years old.
The symbol on this necklace is from the ancient petroglyphs found in the Snake River Canyon here in Idaho. This “star” is found on a stone in Celebration park and the sunsets and rises at these different points on the solstice and equinox times. Although we can only speculate we can not say for sure that it was a symbol used for telling the time of the year.
Comes with a certificate of Native American made authenticity.
