    I have a walrus tooth (incisor), if that helps.

    When I was in 5th grade (I think) I went to Washington DC, and alongside the Mall at a street souvenier vendor, bought a little replica of the Washington Monument with a termometer attached to the side.

    So I voted "yes"

    Mine is black onyx, about 2' tall. Just a basic (elongated) triangle that I got in one of those tourist-trap shops in Mexico years ago. I think it was in Cancun. The tip has been broken off and Crazy Glue'd back on, but it was a clean break and isn't terribly obvious. I keep it on a corner of my coffee table where it goes well with the rest of my decor, which is basically angular, chrome, glass, and black and white.

    The supposedly 3,300 year old one?
