The first thing I simply can't say enough, is that FOSSIL ivory is NOT elephant or rhinoceros ivory. No modern day animals were killed by modern day humans to acquire fossil ivory - although I can't speak for ancient humans/hominids lol. Fossil ivory is dug out of the ground in Alaska and Siberia, and much of it is actually found as a by-product of gold mining.
Fossil ivory is thousands of years old and has mineralized while buried in the ground. Fossil ivory has a warmth and organic feel not found in other ancient fossils. It feels friendlier, more familiar, while still carrying that deep connection to the ancient past. Fossil ivory is very helpful for connecting with the animals and natural world of the ancient past, and for learning the deep lessons only time brings.
