There’s nothing finer in South Carolina(r) than this opal and fossilized ivory art jewelry pendant!
Oh, did you say ivory? Yes, that’s correct. This piece of ivory came from the one of the mammoths, mastodons or four-tusked elephants that lived in this area during the Ice Age some 11,000 to 2.6 million years ago. The Columbian mammoth also happens to be our state fossil.
Fossil ivory is a less-common find. It takes a sharp eye to tell the difference between it and the ever-present phosphate rock. As with all our MORPHOLOGIE jewelry line, this piece was spotted and collected by a CFA staff member.
Also set in the pendant is an attractive Australian opal triplet. It shows heavy flashes of green, orange and hints of blue in a 15X10 mm cabochon. Opal is a traditional birthstone for October.
It is said that an elephant never forgets. Don’t forget about this one, because it’s sure to sell out quick!
