Very interesting scrimshaw whale tooth. This example has a fascinating look to it. This must have been a very old whale as there are many, thick crystalline calcium deposits and even a gap between deposits. I have seen a lot of whale teeth but nothing quite like this. It measures a bit under 6 inches long but is a fat brute at over 3 inches wide, a circumference of over 8 inches and weighing over 20 ounces...
