In excellent condition, this gorgeous 34-inch fossil mammoth tusk was found preserved in the North Sea bed, Flevoland, Netherlands.
Ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum, this tusk comes from a mammoth that trekked through the frozen tundra more than 15,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene. A custom-made stained solid oak stand showcases its beautiful curvature.
Overall, this is a superb tusk because of its stunning coloration, with rare orange patterning, only occasionally seen in tusks preserved in the sea. Importantly, it has not been painted over or had areas filled with bondo.
