Faux (Imitation) Ivory Whale's Tooth.
This is NOT a REAL tooth. It is made of polyurethane.
The original tooth was harvested long before the ban on whaling and no living whale
was harmed in the cloning (duplicating) of this tooth.
The dimensions of the tooth are 5" x 2.25" x 1.25".
It is not hollow. It is solid polyurethane resin and weighs 8 oz.
LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. One side of the original was sanded to remove most, but not all of the tooth detail. The other side looks exactly as it did when it came from the whale.. The imitation tooth will copied in this fashion.
THE MASTER IMAGE HAS BEEN TINTED TO SHOW THE NATURAL MARKINGS OF THE TOOTH.
THE ITEM PURCHASED WILL BE OFF WHITE.
This Poly product will engrave or scrimshaw very nicely. Just sand it smooth, seal the pores with a good quality wax and use sharp tools.
