Save the Elephants!

Ni Hao!!! Last Thursday, Alexandra Mor, a famous jeweler came to our technology class to teach us about a variety of her jewelry. Her main lesson was to teach us about how she saved the elephants. She discovered a kind of nut called a Tagua nut that when peeled, it looks like elephant ivory. This is important because many elephants (not in the U.S) were getting killed for their tusks. She showed us three different Tagua nuts. One was unpeeled, one was peeled and one was carved into an elephant. She also showed us some gems including ruby, emerald and amethyst. This experience made me more conscious about what I buy and how it’s made.
