Your heart is pumping all day, every day, without a break. Every minute your heart pumps about 5 quarts of blood through your system; pretty amazing when you stop to think about it. It's little wonder the heart is the symbol of love - that enduring, never-ceasing presence that reminds us we're alive.
This delicate heart pendant is hand carved from fossilized mammoth ivory. Mammoths roamed the earth thousands of years ago and have been extinct for over 10,000 years. The fossilized mammoth tusk stayed buried in the earth all that time until it was finally excavated, gathered, and carved into beautiful works of art.
