Fossil Walrus Oosik Penile Bone Earrings
Truly one of a kind earrings made from fossil walrus penile bone. Beautifully shaped teardrop shape showing the interior porous core and solid outer material.
Excavated from the ancient Yupik Eskimo village Kukuluk (coo coo' look) and traditional hunting camp sites (dating up to 10,000 years old) on St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea. Oosik (pronounced "oo' sik") is the Eskimo word for the walrus penile bone (baculum). Years of burial have given the bone a range in color from rich brown to creamy eggshell. This unique dense bone is perfect for jewelry, carving, knife handles or collecting.
