This is a cross-cut section of a Siberian woolly mammoth tusk (Mammuthus primigenius). Part of this cross-cut section is usually hidden from view, since it sits deep within the skull (pulp cavity). Despite the small cracks, the ivory of this piece is rock-solid and completely dry. Please carefully look at the pictures for precise dimensions. The colour of the ivory is a beautiful mix of beige, blue and brown.
Geological epoch: Pleistocene.
Age: Over 10,000 years.
Origin: Sakha Republic (Yakutia).
This mammoth tusk base is presented in its natural condition - it is not stabilized and/or injected with resin. Please take note that none of our mammoth ivory is artificially stabilized and/or restored unless explicitly stated.
