This stunning silver and ancient mammoth ivory polar bear pendant can be worn as a kind of talismanic piece with its totem bear symbolism and Native Alaskan design details.
O, how glorious it would be to set my heel upon the Pole and turn myself 360 degrees in a second! - Joseph Banks
This fossilized mammoth ivory polar bear pendant marries pictorial bear art with a Native American bear symbol for a piece that radiates powerful bear energy—a wonderful gift for anyone who connects with this spirit animal. Native American cultures have long revered the bear for his power as the 'keeper of medicine' and ability to guide the shaman on their journeys.
The polar bear is hand carved from fossilized mammoth ivory, selected for its soft, creamy tone. Mammoth ivory has lain in permafrost or the earth for millennia, dating back some 15,000 years to when the last of the great mammoths still roamed the earth. It is prized for its relative scarcity and for the luminous opacity it lends to carvings.
This carved ivory pendant also features an iridescent labradorite accent stone. Labradorite is considered the stone of mysticism, magic, and transformation, making it a wonderful match for the bear symbolism. The combination of creamy fossilized ivory and icy-toned labradorite gives this pendant a decidedly Northern look that wears beautifully with your favorite looks.
