Product Description

Brief history on ammonite fossils and Whitby Jet:

Ammonites were a sea creature living in the Jurassic and Cretaceous times over 240 to 60 million years ago, and are often found on the Yorkshire coast and formed as fossils the same time as the Whitby Jet.

Whitby Jet is also a fossilized material, however in this case it is the remains of a tree called the Araucaria Tree also known as the Monkey Puzzle tree and is dense black, hence the term “Jet black”.
