We’ve paired a handsome turquoise cabochon with an amazing piece of mammoth tooth for this southwestern-inspired sterling silver pendant.
The attractive green and brown-veined turquoise was mined in Arizona.
The fossilized enamel came from the one of the mammoths that inhabited the Charleston area during the Ice Age some 11,000 to 2.6 million years ago.
This particular sliver of enamel was once part of a massive mammoth tooth that was broken and polished naturally over time by the action of waves and sand. If you look close, you can see the subtle creamy tans, gray-black blues and impossible yellow colors of the enamel.
Finds such as these are why we absolutely love collecting fossils from around the Charleston area of South Carolina.
