B GRADE - this listing is for the light colored and off colored Pink Ivory. Pink Ivory is a great wood for Crochet Hooks, smooth as glass. But not all is really pink. So if you want the benefits of a great wood hook at a cheaper price, this is the one for you!
Pink Ivory is especially favored nowadays by carvers and turners, and is typically used to make smaller-sized items such as bowls, pool cue butts, chess pieces, golf putters, knife handles, and game calls; it is also popular for inlay and marquetry work. Pink Ivory blanks are usually on the narrower side because the trees — found predominantly in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique — rarely produce trunks wider than a foot in diameter (the trees reach heights of about 20 to 40 feet).
This wood is one of the rarest woods in the world.
