These fossilized walrus ivory beads are made from walrus tusk that is 500-3,000 years old. The walrus tusk has lain in the earth for centuries, accreting a variegated rich caramel to cocoa hue. Its range of natural tones and rare quality make it a prized material in fine jewelry and artisan crafts. Fossilized walrus ivory is an important cultural and economic resource for the Native peoples who gather it for use in carving, sale, and trade.
