Description

Enjoy this beautiful prehistoric fossilized woolly mammoth ivory money clip with silver plated setting, a great reminder of your time in the great North!

Each piece is unique and represents slight variation in veining and color.

Mammoth's roamed Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America until the last ice age, becoming extinct about 10,000 years ago. For thousands of years tusks in Alaska, Canada, and Siberia remained well preserved in the permafrost, only recently unearthed.

Often mammoth tusks are found by gold miners during the course of their placer mining activities or during the spring floods that wash tusks from frozen river banks.

Each tusk is unique and can come in dark browns, tans, blues "blue ivory", and even greens, which is very rare. The color of the tusk depends on where the tusk was found and the types of minerals that were present in the soil.

Mammoth tusks are very large and can weigh up to 300 pounds each and measure over 16 feet in length, a true testament to Alaska's grandeur and ancient history.
