This six-foot, eight-inch fossil mammoth tusk is in impeccable condition. An unbelievable find from Southwest Siberia, its 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 over 20,000 years ago during the Late Pleistocene.
This Ice Age treasure is ready to be displayed in your museum, home or office. A handcrafted oak stand showcases its beautiful shape and curvature. Note that it has not been painted over or had large areas filled like many other tusks on the market.

Tusk with stand: h=40"; l=37"; w=20". The stand weighs 5 lbs
