Wall Street II pen turned from Mastodon Ivory.
The Ivory is 10,000 to 40,000 years old found frozen in the arctic tundra.
It is very hard and dense but it is not fossilized, it cuts and turns easily much like deer antler.
It polishes beautifully the finish is just wet sanded with mineral oil and wax.
Pictured with the pen are remnants of the tusk.
