This is a cross-cut section of a Siberian woolly mammoth tusk (Mammuthus primigenius). Part of this cross-cut section is usually hidden from view, since it sits deep within the skull (pulp cavity). Despite the small cracks, the ivory of this piece is rock-solid and completely dry. Please carefully look at the pictures for precise dimensions. The colour of the ivory is a beautiful mix of cream, brown and green patches.
