Large amounts of fossil mammoth ivory are found in Alaska and the Yukon. This pin is hand carved from fossil ivory of prehistoric North American mammoths who once roamed the area. These elephant-like enormous animals sometimes had tusks that weighed as much as 200 pounds each. Climatic conditions allowed this ivory to be preserved in the permafrost of the North for thousands of years.
Comes in a wooden gift box with historical explanation.
Pin measures 1.5" from wingtip to wingtip. Body is gold.
