These graceful tusks serve as a reminder of the impressive Wooly Mammoth. These majestic animals roamed the earth over 1 million years ago, up to as recently as 4000 years ago. They were one of the largest mammals to ever walk the earth, often standing as high as four meters at the shoulder. The tusks measured as long as 16 feet. Over the millennia, as the mammoth became extinct, glacial deposits buried their giant tusks.
Mammoth tusks have been found in Europe, North America and Asia since the end of the last ice age. The Mammoth roamed across the land bridge between Siberia and Alaska during the ice age when parts of Alaska and the Yukon in Canada were free of ice.
Mammoth tusks can still be found in creeks and gold claims in Siberia, Alaska and the Yukon. Canada Fossils collects and buys mammoth tusks and then carefully restores them to their original condition.
While mammoth tusks of over 60 kilograms are rare, the heaviest mammoth tusk that we have found weighed 111 kilograms (250 pounds). Male mammoth tusks are much thicker and heavier that female mammoth tusks. Baby tusks are scarce. Matched pairs are unique and extremely rare. The finest mammoth tusks are often purchased by museums. Canada Fossils has supplied many museums in Europe, North America, South America and Asia, while other mammoth tusks are now held in private collections in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and many other countries.
Mammoth tusks are found with various shapes curves and colours. Each piece is unique and individual. Pricing is based on size, shape, curve, range of colours, and overall appearance.
All of our mammoth tusks come with a custom made oak stand with a brass identification plate and a certificate of authenticity.
