Large Mammoth Tusk with Unique Coloration - 6'8"
This exceptional fossil mammoth tusk is in an impeccable condition - an unbelievable discovery from Southwest Siberia.
The natural coloration is a unique pattern of deep brown, golden brown, mottled with lighter creams, accented by black. We've never offered a tusk quite like this!
The tusk comes from a woolly mammoth that trekked through the frozen tundra more than 20,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene.
This gorgeous fossil is ready to be displayed in your home, office or museum. A handcrafted oak stand showcases its beautiful shape and curvature.
Importantly, this Ice Age treasure has not been painted over or had large areas filled like many tusks on the market.
