Details for Other

Only use when the object is definitely none of the above, e.g. plastic, platinum, zinc, aluminium.Also use ‘other’ for the white material (perhaps decayed shell or calcium carbonate) which can be found in early Anglo-Saxon jewellery, and for any other material which is not covered above, including metal ores such as galena, or completely unidentifiable materials.Because this is a large catch-all category, it is essential to enter more information in the Description field.
