Ivory / tip of tusk? Help ID

Recommended Posts

netosols

Hi! I found this ivory piece I would like some help...

 

Its has a rounded tip so I figure it might be a type of tusk tip? I know ivory grows on ring like formations but this piece is almost flat like more of a oval. 

 

And its so polish on the outer layer.

 

I found it in a beach near Tybee Island in the Savannah River.

 

Any help is apprecieated!!!

 

Thanks in advance

They also seem to indicate that it is a slab from one side.
