    looks like bone or ivory but could turn out to be resin, run it under the tap and or wash in water with a touch of washing up liquid, this wont hurt it. a lot of this kind of statues are found in the river thames in london as they were and still are thrown in as part of a festival/worship.

    A toothbrush works well & gently for getting into crevasses.
