Mammoth Fossil Ivory Display Specimen
Mammoth tusk fossil ivory comes from the two modified upper incisors of extinct mammoth. Mammoth Ivory or Mastodon Ivory is fossilized from an extinct mammal which was called woolly mammoth. The Woolly Mammoth Mammuthus primigenius has been extinct for at least 10,000 years. They originated in Alaska and Russia. Their now fossilized Ivory tusks are a very rare and precious material, buried deep within the permafrost.
Revered by many cultures for centuries, Fossils, because of their age, are often used as talismans for protection and long life. They are links to the past and, as such, can be helpful for past-life visualisation, astral travel and increased knowledge of ancient ways. Fossils are associated with the earth element, which can heighten your intuition, especially when learning about crystals. Fossils can teach us to be aware of the cycle of life and to embrace change with a feeling of security. This specimen was hand polished to bring out its natural beauty.
