Default A Tragedy has happened

I didn't think it possible, but I broke the front bead on my 1913 Trojan. It was a pretty cool brown and orange marbled color. Were these made of glass or some kind of composite? I would imagine replacement would be near impossible. Any suggestions for repair would be great!

Never seen one on a Trojan but could it be Amber?

Could be age stained ivory.

Might have been ivory, it was white on the inside.

It's likely an ivory bead that has changed color with age. Aged ivory beads generally turn yellow / brownish with age. I like the look. I get the same effect, more or less, by leaving new ivory beads on when I refinish a barrel set with them. They "age" to a nice yellow / brownish color that nicely mimics an old aged bead. I don't like the looks of a new ivory bead on an old gun. It looks out of place to my eyes.
