In impeccable condition, this 37-inch fossil mammoth tusk is an unbelievable discovery from Siberia. The tusk comes from a young mammoth that lived on the tundra more than 20,000 years ago, during the Late Pleistocene epoch.
Overall, this is a superb specimen because of its intact tip and gorgeous coloration – it’s ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum. The natural coloration is stunning with a mixture of earthy browns, beige and black.
A custom-made stained solid oak stand showcases this Ice Age treasure’s beautiful curvature. Importantly, it has not been painted over or had large areas filled like many tusks on the market.
