Bronze age Jet necklace from Scotland
This magnificent necklace made of jet and cannel coal was found in a Bronze Age burial cairn in Kintyre in 1970. It is extremely valuable today, and would have been equally valuable and rare when it was worn by a Bronze Age leader c 2000BC. It is thought to have been a family heirloom and eventually buried with an important person where it was broken and scattered around the body. This is in the Museum at Campbeltown
