Description : Jet is a gemstone comprised of fossilized wood from the Araucariaceae tree family, which is a type of conifer. Fossilized wood has been under the most extreme geological pressure which in turn creates a material durable enough to be used in jewelry, but soft enough to be carved. When in mourning for someone you love, the analogy of extreme pressure is apt. This pin signifies a time of grief, and defines a very specific event in someone's life. The face on this piece is beatific, and contemplative. Portrait jewelry is fascinating as it depicts an individual at a certain time in history, forever preserved. The maple leaves are a significant clue as to the origin of this pin.
