    Just another piece of Heirloom items passed down in OUR family. This is some of the stuff that was packed away in the Victorian Papier Mache Box I just posted a few days ago. Was packed when I moved, and only now I am digging through some of my family stuff here while having the Flu

    Must have had something on the front of the Locket as there are those 2 holes there where I assume some pic was attached -- but it is now long gone.

    Thought a good time to get some pics to post from stuff of my family I had buried away....

    Hope you enjoy!!

      Hi Antiquerose. Your locket is likely to be vulcanite. It's pressed inside which usually means valucantie. Jet is usually plain.

      As a double check vulcanite usually smells a little like rubber and tends to go a khaki or slightly brown colour when exposed to the sun. Vulcanite is also cast, rather than carved like jet.

      Also, a jet chain will have a break on each end where they are glued. Vulcanite will only have one because it's thermostatic so you heat it up to make the links flexible.

      It probably had a little spray of flowers attached to the front, that's why there are holes there. If you google vulcanite locket, you'll probably find a few examples.
