Jet is a mineral, but not just any mineral – it’s a crystal! Jet is a type of coal that forms when wood is buried under sediment and subjected to high pressure and heat over millions of years. Jet is black or very dark brown in color and has a submetallic luster.
Jet is found all over the world, but most Jet deposits are found in Europe. Jet has been used since ancient times – it was even mentioned in the Bible! Jet was popular in Victorian England, when wearing Jet jewelry was seen as a way to mourn the dead.
Today, Jet is still used in jewelry and other decorative items. Jet Crystal is said to have protective properties and can be used to ward off negative energy. Jet is also said to help with migraines, headaches, and stress relief.
