WOOLLY MAMMOTH TUSK (PART OF)
With custom-made stand

30,000 years old
 
Darmstadt, Germany
  
A short section of a mammoth tusk from the terrace deposits of the River Rhine.  
  
A mammoth’s tusk grew continuously throughout its life.  At the base of the tusk, deep inside the skull, new tusk material was laid down in a cone-shaped pulp cavity. In cross section this appears as a series of concentric rings, laid down as annual and even weekly layers.  These are like tree rings, except that the youngest layers are in the centre. 
  
Mammoth tusks  are only partially fossilised and require treatment with a preservative. This fossil has been treated and is now stable. However it is advisable to keep it away from sources of direct heat such as sunlight or a radiator.
