In excellent condition, this gorgeous 51-inch fossil mammoth tusk was found preserved in the North Sea bed, Flevoland, Netherlands.
Ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum, this tusk comes from a mammoth that trekked through the frozen tundra more than 15,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene. A custom-made stained solid oak stand showcases its beautiful curvature.
Overall, this is a superb tusk because of its stunning coloration, with fabulous mottled grey and orange patterns; very rare coloration, only occasionally seen in tusks preserved in the sea. Importantly, it has not been painted over or had areas filled with bondo.
