This incredible fossil mammoth tusk matched pair is in an impeccable condition - an unbelievable discovery from Southwest Siberia.
The tusk comes from a baby mammoth that trekked through the frozen tundra more than 20,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene.
Overall, this rare matched pair has gorgeous coloration - creamy white and earthy brown.
Importantly, this Ice Age treasure has not been painted over or had large areas filled like many tusks on the market.
