In pristine condition, this gorgeous 42-inch fossil mammoth tusk was found preserved in the permafrost in Yakutia, Siberia.
Ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum, this tusk 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 beautiful curvature.
Overall, this is a superb tusk tip because of its intact tip and stunning coloration, with a mixture of ivory white and bands of dark brown. Importantly, it has not been painted over or had large areas filled, like many tusks on the market.
9.7 lbs; 42" long along outer curve; 3" in diameter.
