Whitby Jet for sale
Foraged by hand from the Yorkshire coast of England, sea-washed jet such as this has been used for centuries to make shiny black jewelry. Many examples can be found from the Viking age in the form of pendants, rings, necklaces & other adornments.
Whitby jet is now a relative rarity to find, as all the main seams were mined out during the Victorian era when jet jewelry became incredibly fashionable.
