Product Description

"Skilled labor teaches something not to be found in books or colleges."
Most Native American peoples look upon the arrowhead as a very powerful amulet. This was especially true in the Yupik peoples of the Koskokwim Delta region of Alaska. In the Yupik tradition it was supposed to produce confidence, generate energy and serve as protection. Our Yupik Projectile Point Arrowhead Amulet is designed after an arrowhead brought back from a delta region shaman by Nelson in the late 1800's. It is a simple amulet carved from Bi-color Fossil Walrus Ivory. The unpolished ivory hangs from a leather thong. An interesting and attractive amulet, powerful and strong. 1 inch high, 1/2 inch wide.

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.
