Mammoth Ivory Carvings & Jewellery

Woolly Mammoth Ivory has been used by humans as a carving median and adornment since our time on earth began. This material has a story involving humans from a time in history when “Tribal” life was commonplace. Because of this history it is many people’s belief that woolly mammoth material is indeed more interesting than any other sculpture material in the world.

Woolly Mammoth ivory is better than elephant ivory and does not involve any killing. Our Mammoth Ivory is far cheaper then Elephant ivory so protect our elephants and collect only fossil mammoth ivory!

Our latest shipment of mammoth ivory carvings  has arrived (Oct 2018) I have  sent off more rough to our carvers including a couple of larger sections. We now have several hundred small to medium unique carvings and more unique jewellery. In any case way too many to put on the site. I have added a few new ones on the site and will add more over the coming weeks. Examples of our mammoth ivory jewellery  are at the bottom of the page.

Woolly Mammoth ivory that is of a quality good enough to carve is a scarce resource.

  • Master carvers that have the ability to produce fine works of art from the mammoth ivory are also hard to find.
  • We believe we have the best carvers and the largest range of  woolly mammoth ivory carvings in Australia.
  • We also believe that woolly mammoth ivory carvings are a true collectible art form and can only increase in value.

CARING FOR YOUR MAMMOTH IVORY

Fossil mammoth ivory is sensitive to surrounding temperature and harsh climatic conditions have an adverse impact. Due to its sensitivity to humidity and temperature, when it expands and contracts, it can split due to stress. To protect your mammoth ivory, it is recommended that you rub mineral oil twice a year to replenish its natural oils.

DO NOT!
Spill or put ink on mammoth ivory.
Make the mammoth ivory wet. 
Heat up or freeze mammoth ivory.
Expose the mammoth ivory to fluctuations in temperature and humidity.
