Sperm whale tooth (Physeter macrocephalus)
Fiji Islands archipelago
This necklace is a typical example of an ornament worn by Fijian warriors. It was also an important currency of exchange.
Sawed vertically following the natural curve of the sperm whale tooth, a large specimen could provide six to ten points.
Retaining its honey patina obtained by the addition of oil, this beautiful necklace is distinguished by the large number of points used in its manufacture.
