Details

Jet is a geological material and is considered to be a minor gemstone. It is not considered a true mineral, bur a mineraloid as it has an organic origin being a product of high pressure decomposition of wood from millions of years ago - commonly Araucariaceae. Jet has been used in Britain since Neolithic times. In the Roman period is was used as a magical material for amulets and pendants because of its supposed protective qualities and ability to deflect the gaze of the evil eye. Jet was extremely fashionable during the reign of Queen Victoria who wore Whitby jet as part of her mourning. These Jet Beads are lightweight, black with a good shine. Sold as temporary strung 39cm (approx) strands.
