    My father in law's mother passed away years ago. While cleaning out her basement we found a box of elephant figurines.

    My father in law thinks this elephant is possibly made from onyx.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

      Yes, onyx.

      Thank you for the response.

      After a closer look, the tusk seem to have toothpicks that attach them to the face.

      Is that typical?
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 7 years ago
      Not sure they are toothpicks, but are used to help keep the tusks in place - extra security, I imagine.

      That is what I meant. The toothpicks are used to keep the tusks in place.

      This particular elephant seems a bit more unique. When I lookup onyx elephants, the majority of the figurines are one piece.

      The tusks above are different.

      I honestly do not know if that makes it unique or not..
