Ivory, the substance of elephant tusks. The soft ivory is milky white, opaque, less brittle, the hard ivory is slightly translucent, has a warm, yellowish, reddish or greenish tint and is specifically heavier than the former. The ivory is the finer, the more evenly it is coloured, the more delicate the net-like texture is, and the less clearly it stands out. Ivory turns yellow in the air and does not lose its tendency to darken again even after bleaching.
