An intriguing Victorian pendant made from Whitby Jet. The Gothic Revival pendant has a raised faceted 'gem' expertly hand carved in a high relief design and a 'sunburst' frame.
The highly polished finish gives lovely reflection to all facets of this piece. A very elegant example of Whitby Jet that looks great on a long chain.
+ All the Details
Whitby Jet is a black organic gemstone once mined in the English town of Whitby. It is very surprising to hold as it is extra light, weighing half of what an agate piece of the same size would weigh; no wonder it was prized for the large mourning necklaces popular in the Victorian era.
The pendant is carved to the front with a plain highly polished back and is suspended from a fabulous oval Whitby jet bail.
Size: 1.37 x 2.5 inches (including the bail ring) or 35 x 63mm and .5 inches or 12mm at the highest point.
Weight: 9.3 grams (pendant only)
Condition: Excellent. Highly polished front and back, looks as new. The bail ring has a closed cut right through, part of the making process and does not compromise the strength at all.
The pendant is presented on a new blackened brass chain, 34 inches or 86cm long. Shown on a life size torso in image three.
Love. The black on black effect of this Gothic Revival pendant is very chic and very beautiful.
There is a lot of information on the internet about Whitby Jet and its very interesting history. http://geology.com/gemstones/jet/
