    • This jet bead appears to be of the same construction and material as SF79 and even though the diameters and weights are slightly different it is conceivable that they could be parts of the same necklace. This jet bead is sub-spherical in shape with a centrally drilled circular hole and possibly dates to the medieval period 1250 – 1500 AD. The ends are slightly flatter than the rest of the bead and the body exhibits turning lines from lathe finishing. The suggested date for this object is medieval, 1250-1500 AD.
