In pristine condition, this gorgeous 46-inch fossil mammoth tusk was found preserved in the permafrost in Yakutia, Siberia.
Ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum, this tusk comes from a young mammoth that trekked through the frozen tundra more than 20,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene. A custom-made stained solid oak stand showcases its beautiful curvature.
Overall, this is a superb tusk tip because of its intact tip and stunning coloration, with a mixture of cream and earthy brown. Importantly, it has not been painted over or had large areas filled, like many tusks on the market.
This tusk weighs 8.8 lbs, its length 46" along outer curve and the diameter is 3".
Height with stand: 33", length:23". Weight of the stand: 2.4 lbs
