Jersey return for 7,000-year-old Neolithic ring

A Neolithic stone ring which dates back more than 7,000 years is to be returned to Jersey. La Societe Jersiaise and Jersey Heritage bought the polished jadeite ring for $17,500 (£11,291) at auction. The ring, which was found in 1986 and sold to a private collector in 1993, is considered to be one of the island's most valuable archaeological treasures. It is made from stone quarried in the Alps and was brought to Jersey by the first farmers who colonised the island. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-jersey-16223233
