EVER WONDERED WHERE WHITBY JET COMES FROM? 
Our lovely town is famous for its association with the precious black gemstone, known as Whitby jet. 
 
Beautiful and distinctive, we love seeing jet jewellery in Whitby’s shops, but then we started to wonder where it came from … 
 
Did you know that jet is actually fossilised wood, created from the Monkey Puzzle tree (Araucaria tree, for lovers of Latin)?
