Additional Information: Fossil coral is an organic gem material that has been used for ornamental purposes for several thousand years.  Fossil coral occurs naturally in a broad range of attractive colors. However, the supply of these colored fossil corals have been greatly reduced due to various reasons. This reduction in the supply of naturally colored fossil coral has led to the practice of dyeing pale-colored and white fossil coral into various colors. Commonly, the white and light colored fossil coral is bleached prior to the dyeing process so that better penetration and more homogeneous coloration may be achieved. Additionally, polymer impregnation may be used to enhance the appearance of fossil coral and give it a smoother surface, which makes it more useful for many applications like using it for knife handles. A large portion, as high as 9095%, of the fossil coral entering the market is color-enhanced. This particular piece of fossil coral I used for the handles has been dyed pink and has been been cross-cut to display the cells of the coral. 

The Giraffe bones I use are from the leg bones of the Giraffe. These bones come from South Africa and were legally obtained from harvested animals. This particular piece of Giraffe bone has a nice patina a nd provides a nice contrast to the Fossil Pink Coral.
