Casein Picks

Casein Picks

 

Casein plastic (also known as galalith) is a very early form of plastic that, despite its own beauty and wonderful properties, has almost entirely fallen by the wayside in this day and age of petroleum based plastics. Formed by treating the ubiquitous milk protein casein with specific hardening agents, casein plastic has the good fortune of being able to imitate the look and (more importantly) the tone of real tortoiseshell to an uncanny degree.
