An exquisitely carved mammoth ivory Butterfly Pendant. This butterfly is so delicate and beautiful it looks as if it will take flight at any moment.
This Butterfly Pendant is carved from mammoth ivory which can still being found in the arctic regions of Alaska, Canada and Siberia, preserved in the permafrost. Mammoth ivory varies in color depending on the minerals the ivory has been exposed to over time. This changes the color but not entirely – you can still see the distinctive rings and cross hatching that is an exclusive mark of ivory.
This pendant is 1 1/4″ x 1 3/8” with a sterling silver bail and silver chain
Note: The Mammoth ivory in this pendant was found in Russia and came to the US by way of China. Russian mammoth ivory is some of the finest in the world. Estimates on the age of mammoth ivory is around 10,000 years old.
