Fossil mammoth ivory chunk, best grade 18 ounces
Fossil mammoth ivory polished piece 4 ½ inch’s tall x 4 inches wide x 1 to 1 3/3 inches thick. An exceptional piece, quality is as good as it gets. A grade above #1 is called ‘gem grade’ often sold by the gram. The combination of blue dot specks and alligator patterning makes this stand out. I include a few pictures because each shows a different slight aspect of color and character as the light changes. My plan when I started polishing was to create a display piece to stand up and look at. I realized when done there is enough material here for a set of pistol grips. One pictures show this piece next to one of my black powder pistols about the size grips a Ruger Blackhawk has to get a view of what to expect. A window could be sanded for scrimshaw work. Jewelry work can be made. All kinds of ideas possible for this exceptional one of a kind #1 grade piece that is over a pound. Price high, this is very high end rarely seen, so it cost. Out of a thousands of pounds, this is the best pound. As pistol grips, this would be a jaw dropper. (gosh I read this and might not want to sell it now! Ha!)
Fossil mammoth ivory chunk for slicing 1.5 ounces
Mammoth fossil ivory chunk for carving slicing into earrings – pendants etc. A cube 2 x 1 ½ x 1/2 inches. Dyed stabilized colors all the way through. Guessing about 4 sets of earrings, 8 slices. This cuts like wood. Do not get wet while cutting, do not get hot while sanding. Otherwise it works like wood. I’d use a sealer when done no varnish! Even a furniture lemon oil or wax helps it look nice. Thin superglue works nice.

Mammoth ivory for jewelers 8 cut polished
Ice age fossil mammoth ivory polished pieces. 8 separate pieces – total of 8.2 ounces. These used to be knife scale sets but have no match so are singles, good for pendants, crafts carving inlays etc. Possibly knife scales for pocket knives ir end caps guards, but I was thinking jewelers for pendants. Sizes but minimum 2 ½ x 1 x 1/16th to over 3 x 1 ½ x 1/4th inches. Each should make at least two generous size large pendants. All are #1 grade top gem class colors with blues and top patterning. Prices are much less than getting finished cabs. Cut your own cabs or custom freeform. One top cab from this can be worth the price of the entire batch. (check out my other prices for sets and formed pieces and finished art made from this material.) This is a wholesale price for jewelers.
