History -Stegodons roamed the earth during the Pleistocene era. Our fossils come from excavations on the islands of Indonesia where hundreds of Stegodon bones have been uncovered. Although similar to mammoths and elephants, Stegodons lived long before them.
Stegodon bones buried under volcanic ash became fossils over thousands of years and mineral-rich water seeped into the bones. The deposited minerals eventually replaced the organic cell structures, resulting in the patterned fossils we see today.
Stegodon fossils are so intriguing because they have a more rustic look, rather than a highly polished gemstone look. This is due to the specific minerals that brought about fossilization. Holding one of these fossils in your hand is a rare experience.
