The teardrop accents are carved from fossilized walrus tusk ivory, which is several hundred to 3,000 years old. It has spent most of its long life in the earth where minerals gently stain it the warm honey to chocolate shades we see today. Native Alaskans gather our fossilized walrus ivory for use in their carvings or for sale/trade. It is a prized natural resource and valued around the world in fine crafts and art jewelry pieces such as this one.
