Jet ring

Jet ring

With a decoration carved in its chaton or flat part featuring a schematic tree or similar plant element. In the castro of Viladonga appeared, as in other deposits of the same time, several pieces of jet, mainly rings but also pendants of necklace and other adornments; The work of this carboniferous material, with a high symbolic and even "magical" value, is documented to the point that also some crude pieces of jet were found here, probably coming from neighboring Asturias.
