Whitby Jet has a long and proud tradition of helping people during their periods of mourning. From the Early Neolithic we have buried our loved ones with jet jewellery and amulets. Jet is also found in association with cremation burials from the Iron Age. Many jet working communities have rich traditions of jet bringing comfort to the dying, and the Amazonian Indians tell us that they still burn jet to help remove sorrow from the community following bereavement.
