Bone is a remarkable material with a smooth texture and is one of only a few naturally occurring white carvable materials on our Earth. The durability of this stone-like ivory white colored compound made of important minerals has fascinated people for millennia, both because of the unique shapes in which it naturally occurs as well as the amazing strength and smoothness of the thickest bone found only in very large animals, such as wild elk, bison or the domestic buffalo and cow. The incredible density and smoothness of these select pieces combined with its relative density and hardness ratio made it possible to sculpt and carve with tools as simple as stone. Bone became an ideal jewelry material because of this, combined with its resilient nature of having a very subtle flexibility that is almost undetectable, but indispensable for use as important items such as hooks, tools and sewing instruments. As we have evolved to live a more secure life through millions of years, decorative items of luxury such as a necklace made of bone because symbols of status, often given as gifts by admiring community and family members.
