In 1977 a Russian bulldoze operator working in Siberia noticed a block of muddy ice containing a dark mass. On closer inspection he was amazed to see the contours of a small elephant-like creature. He had discovered a perfectly preserved Woolly Mammoth.
All over the frozen northern parts of Sibera and Canada we find the frozen carcasses of hundreds of thousands of large mammal species. These are mainly mammoths, but also wooly rhinos and other creatures of this kind. When their stomach contents are examined they have found to have been grazing on warm weather vegetation and yet they are found extremely close to the north pole.
II Grade Ivory
concerning our material
mammoth ivory is actually fossil ivory, there are no bans for its importing
or exporting. Nevertheless, special import certificates are needed. The
Kit Wing Crafts is the professional exporter with long experience on the
market, and this is why our export operations do not take long to be performed.
Moreover, we possess all needed sertificates and licenses for exporting
The ivory we export is found
in permafrost areas of Siberia. Since it stayed in earth for a very long
period, the quality of different pieces is different. We recognize five
grades, from best to chips. To the right you can see instances of each
grade. Below is the table explaining different grades and pricing. Exact
details are found in the "Information" part of our page.
Along with trading the raw ivory we export raw mammoth tusks. This merchandise is usually used not for carving, but for decorations, etc. Similarly to the raw ivory, we recognize up to five grades of tusks. However, prices for tusks are usually higher than for cut ivory, since it is more valuable product.
