Listing is for one set of scales. The piece pictured is the piece you will receive.
These scales are stabilized and heat cured with resin which produces a more durable material, however, this also results in resin on the outside of the scales so each piece will require a light sanding in order to remove the resin from the surface before attaching to a handle.
Raffir Fossils are genuine fossils. Raffir has developed a unique preservation treatment for each of these. All of the treatments stabilize the fossils with vacuum, high pressure and strong resins. Meanwhile, the resins used differ depending on the material. Nonetheless, they all result in a stronger material that is useful for a wide array of luxury products. Raffir Fossils are most commonly used for fine handles. We also recommend them for jewelry, inlays, accessories and other precious objects.
Working with Raffir Fossil materials:The fossils are not yet petrified. However they do contain natural minerals and are harder to work than non-fossil material. Raffir Mammoth Ivory is the softest of the three. We recommend that you process it with normal tools for bone and horn. Our Raffir Mammoth Bone is harder than the ivory. Yet, it is still processed with the same equipment. Finally, Raffir Mammoth Molar is the hardest of the three because of its enamel layers. We recommend diamond tools for this. Alternatively, use tools for hard steel at low process speed if diamond tools are not available. We also recommend saturating the surface of all Raffir Fossils with cyanoacrylics (SuperGlue) after grinding followed by additional fine sanding and polishing for a smoother and stronger result.
