AWESTRUCK

A large, hand carved hair pin made from Woolly Mammoth Tusk with a decorative insert of New Zealand Pounamu.

The tusk this piece is carved from is beautiful! It has that WOW factor!

It exhibits the fascination brown/beige/blue shades that seem to be unique to some fossilised Mammoth. The blue shades are a result of a mineral called vivianite. This is a hydrated iron phosphate that initial is clear but progressively darkens to these marvellous blue shades when exposed to air.

The Jade insert at the top of AWESTRUCK adds a little 'New Zealand' to this fascinating piece. We love the combination of the two materials - New Zealand Pounamu and rare Mammoth Tusk.

AWESTRUCK is a beautiful piece, and can certainly be used as a unique pin for your hair! It is a very large, slender, elegant and a beautiful work of art.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to wear this piece as a pendant, we can put a plaited and adjustable cord on it for you - just let us know and note the colour you would like - we'd be happy to do that for you!

Shipping is included in the price.
