I can see why this material might be ID'd as "walrus ivory." I have quite a bit of fossil walrus (teeth and tusk material), from Alaska and China—ivory being one of my specialties.

However, I would have to consider the possibility that this is a piece of deer or elk antler.

A close full-on view of the cross section would help in making a confident ID.
