Product Description

History of Whitby Jet:

Whitby Jet is actually the fossilised remains of the Monkey Puzzle or known as its botanical name, the Araucaria Tree and has been used in jewellery as far back as 10,000 BC but more often in Roman times and most popular during the Victorian times of the late 1880’s when after Prince Albert, Queen Victoria went into mourning.

Whitby Jet can take a good polish and of course is dense black leading to the term “Jet black”.

Although found in Germany, Siberia and the US as well as other small deposits, the best quality over the centuries has always been from England on the coast of Yorkshire.
