Walrus Ivory

Shop walrus ivory from Diablo Organics!

The walrus, Odobenus rosmarus, is a marine mammal most often found in the Arctic region. The most prominent feature of the walrus are its long tusks. Indigenous Inuit populations of this region have used fossil walrus ivory for earrings, septum pieces, and labrets for thousands of years.

Its durable quality and highly polishable finish make this material ideal for body jewelry. Technically, a canine tooth is unaffected by moisture – unlike other organic material – and maintains its integrity for years.

Please note, these ancient buried tusks are eco-friendly and ethically obtained through present-day Inuit.
