Mammoth Tusk with Blue Coloration, 68"
This exceptional woolly mammoth tusk boasts a mesmerizing symphony of colours, including blue, grey-blue, creamy white, beige and dark brown. These hues form gorgeous patterns from base to tip. A truly unique specimen!
Bone, teeth and tusk fossils can occasionally become a beautiful blue colour over time: apatite, consisting of calcium phosphate, reacts with iron and transforms to vivianite, a beautiful green-blue mineral.
Ready to be displayed in home, office or museum with a hand-crafted oak stand that dramatically elevates the tusk and highlights its curvature.
The specimen measures 68" along the outer curve and weighs 55 lbs.
