Mammoth ivory is sourced from the extinct woolly mammoth that perished 10,000 years ago and today tusks are found in the Siberian and Arctic regions. The blue-grey or darker shades of brown discoloration on the sides and at the base of the tusk occur due to the tusk absorbing the minerals in the soil after being buried for centuries.
