Pink ivory was the royal tree of the zulu people and only members of the royal family were allowed to possess it until the anglo-zulu war of 1879. Before the anglo-zulu war, the zulu king (and prior to 1818, zulu chiefs) would possess a pink ivory knob kerry, a stick with one end a knob, and wear jewellery that was also made from pink ivory.According to rumour, non-royals who possessed the wood would summarily be put to death. After zululand fell to the british and was separated into 13 separate "kinglets" in 1883, all vying to retake control of what was once theirs precedent to the onset of apartheid, the pink ivory wood became much less important a sign of control than genuine control could be.
