Is this fossil ivory from Texas?

My grandpa was digging in a construction site in Texas and supposedly found a piece of a mastodon tusk.

Fossil Collector: Irish Boy

Location: Texas

[Editor: Hmm...tricky. Fossil ivory can often have this chalky, cracked appearance, but so can a number of minerals. Any fossil tusk fans out there care to leave a comment to help identify this? Fossil tusk or not?]

    I’m going to say no I have had a couple of lbs of this in the past and this looks to flaky all the way through the stone. I’m going to say its a mineral.
