This is a Pre-1972 white walrus ivory tusks, Eskimo worked tusks, fossil walrus ivory and teeth for carving and scrimshaw, and walrus oosik. Walrus ivory has an outer layer called cementum or bark that covers the chatoyant ("having a changeable, varying luster or color, like that of a changeable silk, or of a cat's eye in the dark") dentine (ivory) and in the center of the tusk is the core or secondary dentine that makes it unique among ivories. The core is not porous and looks like globules of dentine with varying degrees of opaqueness/ transparency.
I am 110% satisfied. Beautiful, deep blue color, very translucent & crystalline specimen. Reasonably priced. Highly recommend to other buyers.
