FOSSIL MAMMOTH TUSKLiterally the ring section of the fossil tusk of a Woolly Mammoth that walked the Earth a minimum of 10,000 years ago.Modern humans coexisted with woolly mammoths all the way through the Upper Paleolithic period when they entered Europe from Africa between 30,000 and 40,000 years ago. Prior to this, Neanderthals had coexisted with mammoths all the way through the Middle Paleolithic and up to that time. Woolly mammoths were very important to Ice Age humans, and their survival may have depended on these animals in some areas.The woolly mammoth is the next most depicted animal in Ice Age art after horses and bisons, and these images were produced between 35 and 11.500 years ago. Today, more than five hundred depictions of woolly mammoths are known, in media ranging from carvings and cave paintings located in 46 caves in Russia, France and Spain, to sculptures and engravings made from different materials.William Henry’s fossil Mammoth tusk is harvested in Alaska and Siberia, regularly from underwater. Itis a rare and mesmerizing material, a living testimony of the first light of Mankind.SMOKY QUARTZSmoky quartz is a grey, translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a brownish-gray crystal that may be almost opaque. Smoky Quartz used to be referred to as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it used to be sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses.CARVED STERLING SILVERCarved Silver is done by hand with chisels and rotary tools. William Henry works with the finest silversmiths to create elaborate (and durable) carvings in sterling silver. In many cases, we use colored sapphires and other precious stones, set in 18K gold bezels, to further decorate these masterful carvings.
