Native American Made comes with Certificate of authenticity stating artist and tribe. This is a real black bear claw. Necklace length: 19" Claw size: 3" HUGE!!! Bead color meaning: Green for life Black for the spirit world Bear stands for introspection and protector there is nothing more ferocious than a mother This claw has been coated in a protective finish to make for a longer lasting claw. Do NOT use fingernail polish on authentic claws. All my claws come clean polished and sealed in a protective professional finish. Finger nail polish looks nice at first but will peel off making your claws look like they too are pealing. I seal these claws to help them last a lifetime otherwise a claw can break or come off of the knuckle bone. My claws will not do that to you. THIS BEAR WAS NOT HUNTED FOR PLEASURE. My people have harvested bears for thousands of years for spiritual use and food. There are special prayers made to ask the bear nation forgiveness before taking the life of one of the bear people. Bear meat is high in fat and is quite tasty it is divided amongst the people for meals. To my people bear fat has healing abilities, the fat is rendered secret herbs are added and it is used as a healing treatment and given to many elders. Bear skulls are often used for prayer sticks or alters, bear robes for healing ceremonies to help bring the bear back to the ceremony, we wear bear claws to carry the healing medicine and strength of the bear with us to honor him. No INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING this is a real animal product and can not be exported without high fees and permits I do not ship internationally. This item has been coated in a protective finish to make for a longer lasting claw.
