Whitby Jet with fossil impressions

Small pieces of Whitby Jet with surface level fossil impressions, including worm traces, Ammonite impressions, bark, and leaves.

It is impossible to guarantee that the impressions are definitely caused by bark or a worm, but they are interesting study pieces.

Our current stock includes:

  • #1 - 41x21.5x3.5MM - a piece with an unusual curled impression - possibly a gastropod, Ammonite, or worm boring.
  • #2 - 34.5x25x6.7MM - a faint impression of bark or another plant inclusion.
  • #3 - 32x30x9MM - an interesting piece with almost perfectly straight lines similar to Sigillaria.
  • #4 - 54.5x22.5x1.7MM - an interesting piece with almost perfectly straight lines similar to Sigillaria.
  • #5 - a packet of nine smaller pieces measuring 5-25MM approx, with various indistinct markings which may be fossiliferous in origin.

Whitby Jet is a gemstone formed by wood decaying under specific conditions, around 182 million years ago.

We are glad to be able to offer a few sizes of these specimens, which have been hand collected from around the Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay area.
