Product Overview

The hummingbird’s body is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, a gorgeous ancient material that is some 500-3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus ivory is a gift to us from the earth as well as from a creature who lived long, long ago. The ivory spends centuries buried underground where minerals color it a range of soft caramel to deep, rich cocoa colors. The Native Alaskans who gather our fossilized walrus ivory count is s a valuable cultural and economic resource; it is prized across the world in fine jewelry and art works.

This fossilized ivory and silver hummingbird pendant is virtually as light as the bird itself—a precious addition to your jewelry collection!
