In raw form, our Dark Tortoise celluloid looks quite dull.  Once cut thin and polished, however, it provides a beautiful imitation of natural tortoiseshell.  This is nicely illustrated by the rod shown above, which has been hollowed out at the right - the resulting translucence bringing out the warm colors of real tortoise, in sharp contract to the solid portion of the rod, at center and left.  For thicker objects, take a look at our Transparent Tortoise.
