Woolly Mammoth Tusks
Largest Matched Pair of Woolly Mammoth Tusks in the World, Alaska, 40,000 - 60,000 years old
This is the largest matched set of woolly mammoth tusks ever discovered. Exceptional curve and coloration also distinguish this massive pair. Entombment for tens of thousands of years in the Alaskan permafrost produced the dramatic coloration of these incomparable specimens, which include the rarely seen "blue" coloration. Most fossilized mammoth tusks exhibit creams, tan and browns, but only occasionally does a specimen displaying "blue" color emerge from the prehistoric permafrost, indicating burial in a deposit containing the mineral vivianite. Offered on beautifully crafted stainless steel bases of contemporary design, which caress the curvature of the tusks while allowing the viewer to appreciate every angle and color pattern.
