The tooth of a walrus is a beautiful ornamental material, it lends itself well to processing with a drill, it is well polished, it has a thick layer of mineralized dentin. During pre-treatment, when the jaw is boiled, the pulp falls out, and an empty, cone-shaped cavity remains at the base of the tooth, which is a feature of the structure of this material. Due to its density and uniformity of its structure, this material allows the production of small products. They began to use it because of the limited reserves of the so-called noble bone (mammoth tusk and walrus tusk), in beauty it practically does not concede to them, it has a yellowish-pink hue.
