The item will not only be the jewel of your collection, but will also make for a very impressive addition to your home. The pictures speak for themselves! This tusk is in wonderful and intact condition, there is just a small professional restoration to the tip of the tusk, using the original pieces. Also a crack has been professionally repaired. Most interesting piece. This piece is truly exceptional and of great beauty which makes this a museum quality tusk. A matt finish has been applied to this piece, but it is also possible to order it with a glossy finish. The black-and-white section of the ruler represents 10 cm / 3.9 inch.
Attractively displayed on a custom-made metal stand with black finish, and ready to display. Not only a museum-quality fossil, but also truly a work of art in its own right and much more beautiful in reality than the photos can convey. Highly recommended for Museum and University collections and specialized collectors.
