Ruger Blackhawk or Vaquero Fossil Walrus Ivory Grips (A)
These Gorgeous grips shows two of the three layers typical of walrus ivory (primary dentine and secondary dentine/core). With beautiful colors ranging from caramel to light tan, caused by mineral absorption from years of being buried. This ancient ivory is unique, beautiful and becoming increasingly scarce.
Handmade in our shop from ivory excavated on St. Lawrence Island by Eskimo people known as Siberian Yupik. For over 5,000 years the Yupiks had villages along the Bering Sea and fashioned sled runners, net weights, chopping tools and other utensils out of readily available ivory. That ivory became hidden from the world for centuries, when it was discarded in the village middens (dumps) along with tusks and bones of walrus, whales and seals. Only now is that ancient ivory being unearthed, excavated by the descendants of the primitive Yupiks that worked it.
