None of our Ivory is contemporary, and not a single animal has been killed, culled, or otherwise harmed to produce our Fossil Ivories. It is the
only perfect, ecologically sound, humane way to own and wear warm, wonderful and enduring ivory.
Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time,
Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any
contemporary ivories by modern processes. The natural colors of our ivories are shown below each individual item page.
As an added option, you may send us a picture of your choice (e.g. your own boat, power or sail, wildlife, etc.) for a commission price quote.
We Use No Elephant Ivory, Nor Contemporary Ivories of Any Kind.
Every piece of Sperm Whale Ivory we sell, is registered with the Department of Commerce, and comes with a Department of Commerce registration number.
