Fossil Jet

Jet is an opaque black fossil plant material. Found in coal seams that were laid down in ocean water. The petrification of the ancient plants in the salt formed a very tough resinous fossil rock.

Jet can be cut and polished into a lustrous and semi-precious stone which can be used for carving, inlaying jewellery, and ornaments.

“The Black Queen” of Victorian jewellery, the best jet can be found in Whitby, England.
