A really wonderful free form shaped, one of a kind, brooch made out of Fossilized Walrus Ivory! It has a rich color palette of tans, yellows and creams in the two layers of the dentine of the tusk. The inner core of secondary dentine has central "crystalline" area. Really interesting grain on the surface looks like fine oatmeal or applesauce. It naturally has beautiful patterns. You can even carve it and add your own scrimshaw. It is legal to own and sell, it is collected and dug up in arctic regions.
- Both sides are polished
- Rare Walrus Tusk Ivory
- Excellent condition
Size: 1½ x 2¼ inches
