Mammoth ivory pen blank from an ancient mammoth tusk.
Most of our pen blanks arrive as one piece of 4.5" length or a little longer. We may send this as 2 pieces with each piece being 2.25 inches long or longer. They will be 1/2" square or we may turn it round in which case it may be slightly less than 1/2" diameter.
This is top grade fossil mammoth ivory. It will not have cracks or other structural flaws although our customers must realize that seldom is mammoth ivory white.It is usually almond colored and sometimes with a mottled pattern or grain.This is quite attractive and a feature of its great age of 10,000 to 20,000 years.
Very well seasoned material that is ideal for pen making.
FMI ships internationally but cannot ship to several US states including NY, NJ, HI, NV, IL or CA.
It will arrive with enamel sealant to protect the material from cracking in cold or hot weather shipping.
