NARWHAL IVORY

Narwhals, the mysterious unicorns of the sea, live in the Arctic Ocean and grow to about 18' (not including the tusk). The males grow an elongated tooth that spirals out clockwise to form a tusk reaching 9' in length. This ivory tusk has been attributed with the creation of the unicorn legends. The tusks have a small hollow that runs nearly the full length, the ivory has no grain or core like elephant, mammoth or walrus but looks more like sperm whale ivory with a pencil sized hollow. Narwhals have been a protected species since 1972 and importation is prohibited. We have a selection of old tusks for sale that were imported in the mid-1900s and are legal to sell anywhere in the U.S. and can also be shipped internationally. These are extremely rare and sell for as much as $20,000 if you can find one. Now is your opportunity to own the rarest, most mysterious, unique and beautiful of the ivories and at a reasonable price. We can make a wood base of beautiful maple burl or you can stand it in a corner without a base or hang it on the wall. We ship the tusks well packed in a 3" diameter PVC tube and there is a $25.00 packing fee to cover the materials cost. Call for current selection.

We do not ship narwhal ivory out of the U.S. If you are over seas we recommend visiting
www.canadianivory.com (Ron Gray). He sells in Canada and over seas but...no U.S. sales.
