There has been a lot of confusion about the make-up of this material, its composition, methods of manufacture and the source of their color since then. Some of these inlays were found to be a type of allotrope of sulfur in 1977. Some years later another inlay type was found on eighteenth-century hope chest furniture,also ivory-colored, that did not contain sulfur.
Another benefit of these chests rests in the fact that they are durable. On first blush, a person checking out a lingerie chest might initially conclude that because of its design it is not as durable as more standard storage units. The fact is that these storage chests are as durable as any other type of storage chest that available at this juncture.
Wood workers and furniture manufacturers in Japan and Denmark have especially found Shaker furniture to be of interest. Many of their artisans have employed the Shaker design elements to create wonderful furniture pieces.

I set the quills side by side and demonstrate the differences, first breaking a cassia quill, with the ensuing loud snap when it breaks. Then I show the cinnamon quill, layered together, and how very easily it breaks and crumbles. With the ground version of each side by side, I ask the class members to smell the two; first the cassia that is the most familiar, and then the cinnamon. The startled reactions when they realize exactly how big a difference exists between these two spices, is quite rewarding.
