Botanical Alternative to Elephant-Ivory - Phytelephas aequatorialis - Cultivated as a cash-crop and known as Ecuadorean-Ivory/Tagua-Palm. Given the trade-restrictions on Elephant-Ivory, Ivory-Palm endosperm is used as a substitute today, and traded as 'Vegetable-Ivory', Palm-Ivory, Corozo or Tagua. When dried out, it can be carved just like elephant-ivory; can be used for beads, buttons, figurines, jewelry, and can be dyed. More recently, palm-ivory has been used in production of bagpipes.
