Or Maybe The Whale…

Here is a necklace which I cannot identify. The wide mechanical chain has no hallmarks, but tests as sterling silver and is heavy and flat with textured square scales. The white material is bone or ivory, pale and cold and very smooth. The grey material is porous with a marrow-like grain and has the feeling of the sea about it. We have extravagantly estimated that it may be whale ivory and baleen, though really I have no idea. If you have any suggestions – of what this substance might be, or where the necklace might originate from, please leave a comment below…
