The woolly mammoth last roamed the earth about 10,000 years ago, and here is an exquisitely hand carved woolly mammoth ivory cross. Lab certified as mammoth ivory as opposed to elephant ivory, this not only makes it ethically sourced as hunting and killing of elephants today is of course banned, but it also allows it to be taken overseas without breaking any international laws regarding the trade of modern elephant ivory. There is no doubt that who ever carved this piece was a true master in carving and knew how to obtain the most detail because as you look closer and closer, you will notice that the carving would not only have taken an immense amount of time, is so exquisitely done. The cross measures 5.5cm across by 8.7cm or 9.7cm to the top of the sterling silver bail. With such a lovely tactile feel to it and exceptional hand carving, both combined with the character of being from a woolly mammoth, this is such a unique and character fulled piece.
