Check out this prehistoric mammoth bottom jaw with teeth that comes mounted on a base made of Missouri black walnut with a wonderful flame pattern. It is about 18 inches tall and 22 inches wide. This beautiful specimen was found north of Fairbanks last fall.
Prehistoric woolly mammoth ivory and bones are found in Alaska, Canada, Russia, and Siberia, and may range in age from 10,000 to 200,000 years. The “bark” or exterior of the fossil mammoth is naturally colorful due to the minerals surrounding the tusk. These minerals seep into the fossil over tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years to create the permanent color of the material.
