This 14.5-inch fossil mammoth tusk is a wonderful discovery from the Yakutia region of Siberia (in the north of Russia). Found preserved in great condition, this tusk belonged to a small juvenile mammoth that traversed the frozen tundra more than 20,000 years ago during the Pleistocene period.
This fossil can easily be displayed in your home or office. A custom-made oak stand is included.
Overall, the intact tip and gorgeous ivory white coloration makes this a superb tusk. Notably, it has not been painted over or had large areas filled like many tusks on the market.
Its length: 14.5"; weight: 1.7 lbs.
