Dentalium shells are small tubular mollusks that look like little elephant tusks. There are over 300 species of dentalium, but the species most used by American Indians were Dentalium (Antalis) Pretiosum which are found along the northwest coast of North America. They have been used ornamentally as beads, money and symbols of wealth for thousands of years and many varieties can be found around the world
