Fossil Walrus Gemtone Brooch/Pin 01
BLUE WALRUS IVORY VICTORIAN BROOCH 2" TALL X 1 1/2" wide excavated ivory has deep blue iridescent color like aurora borealis with tan rays.
This beautiful jewelry was handmade using prehistoric ivory excavated in Alaska by the descendants of the primitive Eskimos that worked it. Minerals absorbed from the surrounding soil have given the buried ivory beautiful natural tones of cream, brown, blue, red, green and black. A color enhancing process is used to achieve some of the rarer and more spectacular coloration. Because this exquisite walrus ivory is thousand of years old, no animals were killed to collect it.
