The tip displays a unique wear pattern from when the animal was alive. These tusks are extremely hard to locate in fine quality examples that are this long and without repair or restoration. There is surface erosion on the outer curve region. Enamel is a beautiful baby blue, gray and white with light cream brown interior surface. NO REPAIR and NO FABRICATION!
