Both rare and aesthetic, this impressive pair is ready to be displayed in home, office or museum (We can design stands of a different style, using a variety of wood types like oak or walnut).
These specimens must be kept in an indoor environment with stable humidity and temperature. Ideal conditions are 50% to 60% humidity and 68 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
Fossil mammoth ivory can be distinguished from present-day elephant ivory by the angle of crosshatching (Schreger lines) and can be traded internationally.
NOTE: due to present restrictions we cannot ship to California, New York, New Jersey, Hawaii, Nevada, Illinois or New Hampshire
