I have acquired a lot of fossil ivory that I would like to carve
into and slice… Are there any hazards to working with this
organic material or tricks to know?? Also, how do you polish it?
Will heat/friction cause it to cleave or shatter or burn? This
is all new to me… I have cut stones, and metal but nothing like
this…And I know that abalone shell is dangerous and you should
only cut it under water… so I am wondering if fossil ivory might
also have some drawbacks. Thank you in advance for any and all
