I am leaning towards calling them ivory.Yeah, ivory can be thicker and you can see lines from different angles so I don't think those are reliable standards to go by. They look like ivory to me.
Too bad more ivory scales were not cut thicker. They wouldn't crack as easy.

The thickest ivory that I have is on a Henkel 71.
The best way to expose the grain pattern,
is to illuminate at a shallow angle, along the grain.
