    I bought this necklace last week in a thrift shop. Is this Ivory or bone?

    I can not recognize it. (There is a necklace with the same shape beads for sale on a local website as Ivory)

      I vote ivory, I see lines and smooth yellowing, no evidence of blood vessels marks
      :-)
      Really pretty necklace, with quality carvind!

      Here are two links helping in identification of ivory: ;-D

      I'm on board with ivory. Color & growth lines are consistent. These are not beads, but does let you see carved ivory, how it ages & some let you see the growth lines.

      The sites kyratango sent links are among my bookmarks too, especially the Real or Repro article.
