Ready to be displayed in your museum, home or office, this 25-inch fossil mammoth tusk is in an impeccable condition – an unbelievable discovery from Yakutia, Siberia (found preserved in the permafrost).
This Ice Age treasure 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 curvature. 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 natural coloration, with a mixture of cream and earthy brown.
