Fossil mammoth ivory block white over 2 pounds solid
Fossil mammoth ivory chunk raw solid block. 4 x 3 x 4 inches, 2.13 pounds. Very solid, cream nice light colors hard takes polish no soft spots good for scrimshaw and can be sliced diced anyway you want. Carvings, pistol grips knife scales etc. #1 grade hard to get this big and solid. Sells in it’s own category as ‘gem.’ Price my sound high? I made a set of pistol grip size scales from the same main chunk, 7 ounces $300. I’m guessing 4 such sets with material left over could be made from this block, $1,200. Less than an hour of my time. So go for it? Make $200 an hour! Do not feel like it. I’m an artist, do not wish to make my living at the sander making others peoples raw material. I have knives to create, fish to catch on the river. A few hundred pounds of mammoth ivory I’d never have time to cut it all up and see the potential. Move it in move it out! Just meaning it is not a bad price for what can be got out of this.
