A fabulous find from the Yakutia region of Siberia, Russia, this 14-inch fossil mammoth tusk is in impeccable condition – it was found beautifully preserved in the permafrost.
This specimen comes from a juvenile mammoth that traversed the frozen tundra more than 20,000 years ago during the Pleistocene period. Importantly, it has NOT been painted over or had large areas filled, like many tusks on the market. Overall, it’s a superb tusk tip because of its intact tip and gorgeous coloration.
This gorgeous fossil is ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum. Includes a custom-made stained solid oak stand.
The natural coloration is stunning with a mixture of cream and earthy brown.
Length: 14" ; diameter: 2.25" ; weight: 2.1 lbs
