Mammoth fossil ivory bark 1 pound 2oz
Mammoth ivory bark 5 x 4 x 3/4 inches thick. Rough unworked, Potentially a lot of blue running fairly deep (look at edge views in pictures). I'd usually take a piece like this and create knife scale sets and double the value, but I have lots of material, not a lot of time, so offering this as a rough material for those who want the best material in the rough. Potge3ntial for pistol grips. Certainly plenty for largest knife scales or several sets. Also could be carved or a window sanded and framed in the blue colors for scrimshaw work. There are some 'character' cracks, nothing a serious structural issue. Cracks can be filled sealed, or clamped shut etc. A nice heavy over a pound piece. Well worth $200 as a finished rough knife scale set.
