Jet is not a gemstone in a traditional sense, but of organic origin as it once carried life, and is the product of fossilized wood. Much like coal, Jet was formed from the remains of wood that had been immersed in water for millions of years, after which it had been compacted and then fossilized. Jet is mostly known as a protective stone. Working almost like an energetic filter, Jet is a wonderful grounding stone that has intense purification and protection properties. Jet is known for clearing the aura of impure energies and is an important stone for the medicine bag. Jet can be used to cleanse other crystals by placing them in a bowl with several smaller pieces of Jet. Jet can also be helpful for those experiencing an overabundance of negative energies or emotions, and has traditionally been used as a stone to alleviate grief. Not only does it draw off negative vibrations, but Jet can help the victim of these vibes to understand their original purpose and the lesson to be learned. Sensitives or empaths who suffer from exposure to negativity in the environment should carry a piece of Jet with them while exposed. Jet is also known as a stone of good luck, Jet makes a great gift for the person starting a new job or beginning a new business pursuit. Jet can bring clarity to a confusing situation by bringing unique insights from variant perspectives.
