Family Araucariaeceae includes an ancient family of coniferous trees that flourished worldwide in the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, and it's a likely contributor to beds of jet found today. Jet is a kind of lignite coal, and most lignite coal derives from peat (decaying vegetable matter); however, jet derives from decomposing wood under high pressure. Trees of the family Araucariaeceae were typically very tall evergreen trees with spirally arranged leaves. The petrified wood of Arizona's Petrified Forest belong to several species of this family, and modern day species include the New Zealand kauri tree and the monkey puzzle tree. Jet was popular in Roman times and again during Victorian England, when Queen Victoria wore jet jewelry as part of mourning following the death of Prince Albert. The lustrous jet beads are combined with hand-crafted lampwork glass beads from Unicorne Beads studio for a smooth and lovely necklace. Cost: $124.00 USD
