Subject:Help Identifying Bone/Ivory Asian Artifact
Posted By: Ari W. Fri, Sep 25, 2020 IP: 2601:404:c67f:3b50:7
I'm hoping someone from this forum might have some knowledge or insights that could prove useful in directing my on-going research into a lovely small rectangular bone/ivory artifact in my possession (possibly a pendant or similar worn object). It was left to me by my late father, an avocational archaeologist and world traveler, who recovered it during a trip to Nepal (however, I'm fairly certain it is not Nepalese). I was told at the time it was very old and either bone or ivory - that's all I know. Google has left me with more questions that answers.
If you think you can help and would like to see more, I have a PDF full report PDF I can provide containing 40+ photos with measurements, microscope photos, translucidity and efflorescence tests, etc. Simply contact me and I'd be thrilled to share.
Many thanks in advance to any able to help.
