IT IS COMPLETE WITH ITS HOLLOW END, unlike many that are sold as complete but lack this critical anatomy to prove it is complete. This tusk is from an adult mammoth. The twist is the finest form, a gentle spiral which is the most desired by seasoned collectors for. The color and grain pattern is incredible and shows amazing aesthetic throughout. Compared to the plentiful supply of tusks from Siberia and Alaska, tusks of European origin are the most scarce and are one of the crown jewel fossils of the classic European Ice Age. A beautiful custom made stand is included as shown
This is probably the last complete tusk we will have. Because of the way fishing is changing in the North Sea and current state laws, this makes this tusk very special.
