with a small potted Monkey Puzzle tree in the foreground. Jet came
from fossilized monkey puzzle trees.




VICTORIAN jet worker’s tools as shown in Helen Muller’s book "Jet". I was
surprised to see how primitive some of the actual tools were, homemade and
well used. The artistry in the best hand carved jet jewelry is amazing.
