Unlike most gemstones, Whitby Jet is organic rather than mineral, formed from fossilised wood of the prehistoric Monkey Puzzle or Araucaria Tree. Light, tactile and very collectible, the finest quality Jet comes from coastal erosion of the North Yorkshire coast.
Join Rebecca Tucker (of W. Hamond, The Original Whitby Jet Store, Est.1860) to learn more about this fascinating material, and use traditional lapidary techniques to make a beautiful Victorian inspired acorn pendant, set in sterling silver.
