Legal pre-ban African elephant ivory tusks, sections, slabs, blocks and cross cuts. The material of choice for gun grips, knife handles, musical instruments, cue sticks, pens, inlays, duck calls and carving. We have been supplying artists and collectors for over 35 years with legal pre-ban ivory. If you need a special cut you don’t see below, please inquire and we will do our best to get you what you need. The great beauty of elephant ivory is due to its warm creamy color and rich grain patterns. The grain changes with the lighting angle, a phenomenon exhibited in opal and tiger's eye and known as chatoyancy. Elephant ivory crosscut or end grain reveals an outer ring of bark or cementum surrounding the inner ivory, which exhibits growth rings and a fascinating moire pattern known as “Schreger lines.” To these qualities add the fact that it is the choicest of carving materials and that it takes a natural shine as lustrous as rubbed lacquer. The natural beauty found in elephant ivory is quite simply enchanting. All of the elephant ivory we offer for sale was imported before the ban and is purchased from estates. No permits are required for sales, shipping or ownership of this ivory within the U.S.


Elephant ivory is excellent for scrimshaw, carving, knife handles, pistol grips, jewelry,
musical instruments, cue sticks, inlay, pens, duck calls, crafts and repairs.
