The fossilized walrus ivory used for the turtle’s shell is some 500 to 3,000 years old. It has lain buried in the earth for centuries where minerals stain it a range of rich colors from pale cream to deep coffee. The native Yupik of St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, gather it for sale, trade, and carvings of their own. It is a valued resource for the Yupik, and is also revered throughout the art community for its quality and rich coloring.
