Frontal section of nasal cavities of a human embryo 28 mm long. (Vomeronasal cartilage labeled at bottom left.)
The vomeronasal cartilage (or Jacobson's cartilage) is a narrow strip of cartilage, low on the medial wall of the nasal cavity. It lies between the cartilaginous nasal septum and the vomer. The cartilage lies below, but is not connected to, the rudimentary vomeronasal organ of Jacobson.
