Whitby Jet Sterling Silver Pendant
Approx 1.5cm in drop
I also made the cabochon for this piece.
180 million years old, the gemstone Whitby jet is anaerobically fossilised wood of the Araucaria tree. The modern day descendant of the Araucaria is the Monkey Puzzle tree (Araucaria Araucana) also known as the Chilean Pine. Whitby Jet is found throughout the North Yorkshire Moors and along the coast around the town of Whitby.

The silver in my pieces come under the exemption weight, which is less than 7.78g, so therefore, they don’t require a hallmark. Anything over 7.78g, requires a hallmark by law.
