Product Overview

These fossilized walrus ivory earrings feature vivid blue topaz accents that brings out the ancient ivory’s rich coloring, creating a miniature worlds unto their own. Colors will vary as each beautiful piece of ancient ivory is uniquely tinted by earthen minerals. The earrings focal points in fossilized walrus ivory are anywhere from 500 to 3,000 years old. The walrus tusk (actually a tooth) has lain buried for most of its long life where it gathers a range of rich caramel to chocolate hues based on the minerals nearby. Fossilized walrus ivory is carved the world over into jewelry, sculpture, and other collectibles. It is an important cultural and economic resource for the Native Alaskans who gather it for carving, sale, and trade.
