Product Description

"The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire."
The many different Northern Athapascan peoples have lived in the forests within the drainage areas of the Yukon and Mackenzie Rivers for many centuries. The snowfalls are heavier, the winters longer and the summers shorter than along the Arctic coast. In these cold, coniferous regions the sun sets quickly once it touches the horizon, sending light, bright colors upwards toward the heavens.

Our Athapascan Sunset Talisman, with its rayed ivory, bright blue/green opal representing the setting sun, four sterling silver beads and two square Blue Fossil Walrus Ivory square beads representing the small amount of blue sky left while the sun sets, is the perfect Talisman you'll love wearing for all informal occasions.

Enhanced by a strip of leather as a neckpiece, this Talisman is 1 3/4 inch high, 1 1/2 inch wide.

Wearing this one-of-a-kind Talisman will remind you to search the heavens for the colors of the setting sun each evening!

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. 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.
