Whitby Jet pieces

Randomly chosen small bag of pieces of Whitby jet. The contents are either raw, beachcombed or offcuts from worked jet. Depending on the size of the pieces there are between two and four bits in each packet. The combined weight is no less than 4 grams. Ideal as an amulet, talisman or good luck token.

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 price is for one small (recycled) bag of genuine Whitby jet pieces, curated from 10 years of living in Whitby. You also receive a wee bit of information about the Whitby jet, as shown in the photo.
