Product Description

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on!"
No large sailboat has ever been sailed long distances without a block. An integral part of every boat - in pairs (a pulley system for the main sheet or for loading cargo), or singularly (as in a winch), it creates mechanical advantage or tremendous convenience. Whether they are made from bronze or wood, blocks have been unchanged in form, and have taken on a romantic image -Seeing them silhouetted against the blue sky allows you to imagine that you are sailing back in the days of wooden boats and iron men.

Our Fossil Ivory Block necklace is a miniature block. 1 inch high, its central wheel turns on its axis. Great for all nautical occasions. Choose your own fossilized ivory, including registered Sperm Whale Ivory or Oosik Ivory as an additional option!

Choose your scrimshaw etching from one of our designs, or have us etch your own boat (or any other scene) as an additional option.

Complete with Sterling Silver chain.

Scrimshaw Etching Options

These are our regular Scrimshaw Design Etchings. In addition to these designs, as an added option, you may send us a picture of your choice for a commission price quote.

Fossil Ivory Color Charts

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.
