After the recent storm we headed to the beach to see if any pieces of jet had been washed up. We found a few sea washed pieces and made a short video to show how to test the quality of the jet.

If rubbed across a piece of sandstone the best quality Whitby jet should leave a light brown/ginger mark. This is the only jet we ever use in our jewellery. Poor quality Jet will leave a dark brown mark. Pieces of sea coal will leave a black mark.

We recently went out along the coast in search of Whitby Jet to use in our jewellery. Here are a few pictures.

For anyone who has not seen it. Here is some rare footage of Whitby jet worker Roy Jay collecting jet on Whitby beach in 1966.
