“Whitby Jet” arrowhead necklace

This stunning one-off pendant has many unique features. The hand-shaped piece of best quality Whitby jet is set in a substantial 925 sterling silver triangular, or arrow shaped, bezel with an integrated loop. The jet has been carefully worked to have smooth polished sides and a polished, but natural, textured front. The pendant measures 20 x 33mm (approx. ¾ x 1¼ inches) including the loop and is supplied on a trendy, modern 18″ (46cm) 925 sterling silver ball chain which complements the design perfectly. This necklace would suit any gender but you might require a longer chain so please ask me about that.

The pendant has been crafted by guest designer “Glittermoth Factory” who lives and works in Whitby. She can often be found looking for pieces of sea-washed jet on the beaches in and around the town. Whitby Jet is an anaerobic fossil of the tree Araucaria (very similar to the “monkey puzzle” trees we see today). It is a product of high pressure decomposition of the wood which became embedded in sedimentary rock some 180 – 200 million years ago during the early Jurassic period. Jet is available worldwide but Whitby Jet is considered the finest quality. The “gemstone” was made popular by Queen Victoria, worn when she was in mourning.

Jet is a mineral of protection and is said to ward off evil spirits, negativity and depression. Just like the original tree, jet has qualities of balance and support. It is also thought to be good for finance, business and all kinds of personal abundance. My blog “What’s With Whitby Jet?” explains more about this unique fossil.

The necklace comes boxed as shown with the descriptive enclosure (photographed) which tells the new owner of this one-off jewellery all about its qualities. A complementary polishing cloth is also included.
