Legally Ethical Mammoth Tusk Ivory Jewelry and Artifacts

Carved Mammoth Ivory tusk - Tweleve Zodiac Animals - 3D Big TuskAs per the latest figures by the International Union for Nature Conservation, mining of mammoth ivory tusks is a large scale business in Russia and Serbia. The tusks of extinct mammoths are pure enamel which is the reason that ivory has been able to survive the permafrost and harsh climatic changes.

However the fact that no animal is poached or killed to procure the mammoth ivory makes it an ethical material for use. It has gained prominence especially after the worldwide ban on elephant ivory and today, a huge range of complete tusk sculptures, jewelry, artifacts and sculptures are crafted.

From Hollywood stars to celebrities including Michelle Obama have seen sporting mammoth ivory jewelry at different occasions. The scarcity of the mammoth ivory tusks due to the mammoths being extinct has increased the pressure on the Russian antique ivory traders. Additionally, with limited ivory available for artists, the demand for fashionable mammoth ivory carvings is fast catching up all over the world but that is exactly the reason for the high prices. The process of locating and excavating a carcass of wooly mammoth in such extreme weather of Siberia is expensive. An average sculptor cannot work on mammoth ivory but requires precise skill and experience to work on fragile ivory. All of this compounds into the cost of the finished artifacts.

From pure ivory pieces, necklaces and jewellery to netsuke, tusk carvings, statues and scrimshaws, there is a wide range of legal ivory art pieces to collect and enjoy. Learn more about netsuke, carved tusks and intricately sculpted artifacts at www.mammothivory.info

 

 

Parrots carving on Genuine Mammoth Ivory Tusk

Hand crafted mammoth ivory group of parrots on a treeWoow… I am really fill lucky to hold this amazing Mammoth Ivory carving vertical tusk of the Parrots family hand carve on 100% genuine Mammoth ivory tusk. This beautiful Mammoth ivory carving is from the  Mammoth ivory Tusk collection at IvoryAndArt.com gallery. I am in love with ivory carving but  in those days i am really into the mammoth Ivory carving because of some good reasons:

Why do  i love Mammoth ivory So Much?

First – It’s eco friendly & carved out from the extinct woolly mammoth that roamed the earth before 10,000 ago.
Therefore no elephant is being killed in order to make such beautiful artifact

Second: To hold in your hand a piece that is a 10,00 years old – always make me excited – Just imagine those huge elephants with their huge tusks walking wild in nature.

Third: Money Investment – Yeas Mammoth ivory is one of the best investments in the field of art today – but for sure is a better investment than Elephant Ivory. The one major reason of the increasing price of the mammoth ivory tusk is the fact that the Mammoth tusks are belongs to extinct animal & in order to find them you need to explore for the in the arctic places like Siberia Russia . As well it’s become harder to find the Mammoth tusks & ofcourse that the number them will come to an end.

Quality and Grades of Artistic Ivory

The main sources of Mammoth Ivory are the regions of Siberia and Alaska. Although the average age of mammoth ivory that is sourced is 10,000 years but there are many instances when anthropologists have dated mammoth ivory to be over 50,000 years old. Many mammoth ivory tusks have been found to be over 14 feet long and male tusks are bigger than the female ones. One of the rare finds is the baby tusks without any damage.

The extinct Mammoth ivory known to be harvested from Woolly Mammoths that perished at least 10,000 years ago, has become rare to find and has become a bigger trade proposition in the last few decades, especially after the ban on the elephant ivory. The excavated mammoth ivory is legally dug and is segregated in a variety of grading and many specific ivory categorizations. There are many forms of ivory which do not make the grade for artistic endeavors, amongst other varieties. Broadly classified into Grade ‘A’ Ivory which comprises of complete tusks, though the length and weight may differ. There is Bark Ivory which does not have complete inner ivory and 3 grades of ivory for artists.
