Raffir Mammoth Fusion is made of real mammoth tusk fragments dating back to the last ice age (10,000-40,000 BP). We have developed a unique high-pressure treatment to stabilize and fuse these fragments into solid blocks. The result is a beautiful and hard composite that is densely packed with mammoth ivory. Mammoth Fusion is very suitable for fine handles, jewelry and inlays. But we also recommend it for many other precious small-sized objects.
The natural colors and fragment sizes vary greatly. This depends on the temperature, humidity and sediment composition where the fossil is found. Furthermore, we can stabilize them in different tones, such as clear, grey, blue or green. As a result, every single block of Mammoth Fusion is unique with its own structures and colors. You can see the typical array of natural colors and patterns here. The availability of patterns and colors differs from batch to batch.
Processing and availability
The mammoth tusk fragments are not yet petrified. Therefore, normal tools for bone and horn are sufficient. Diamond tools are useful, but not necessary. The material is stronger than our other mammoth ivory products and it is very easy to polish. Our standard handle blocks are 4.75"x1.5"x1". We also cut scales pairs of 4.75"x1.5"x.230"and 4.75"x1.5"x.300".
