Purple ball bullet  ANCIENT, WOOLY MAMMOTH IVORY

Wooly Mammoths“ - are extinct herbivorous mammals that had long, dense hair and underfur, very long tusks, a long nose, large ears, and lived throughout the world. There were at least four mammoth species that lived from about 2 million years ago to 9,000 years ago, millions of years after the dinosaurs went extinct. They are closely related to modern-day Indian elephants (they have common ancestor) and evolved during the same period. Mammoths died out while the elephant’s ancestor did not—we do not know why.

Mammoth tusks grew in a variety of shapes, some were straight, some were curved; the longest were up to 13 feet (4 m) long and weighed hundreds of pounds. The tusks were used in mating rituals, for protection, and for digging in the snow for food. Much of our knowledge of mammoths is from cave drawings and from mummified mammoths found in Siberian ice. Mammoths had longer tusks than Mastodons another elephant-like animal that evolved during the same period.


Today mammoth ivory is found during mining operations, in areas with glacial activity, as a result of erosion, and during deep-sea fishing operations. Generally, only ivory that has been in the permafrost in the far north (and therefore not subject to freezing and thawing) is suitable for use. Mammoth ivory is used for carving, to make jewelry, knife handles, and pistol grips.

The outer surface of mammoth tusks is called bark ivory (like the bark on a tree). This outer ivory will occasionally have lines in its surface (called bark lines) and represent the normal wear on the outer ivory from the animal using the tusk. ”
