Jet is not a gemstone in a traditional sense, but is of organic origin as it once carried life and is the product of fossilized wood. Much like coal, Jet is formed from the remains of wood that has been immersed in water for millions of years, after which it has been compacted and then fossilized. 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 commonly used as a stone of protection. Jet is a great ally to all on the spiritual path, due to its perfect combination of protective vibrations. Jet can facilitate the release of negative behavior patterns and old emotional attachments, freeing the individual for rapid personal growth.
Jet is considered one of the most powerful absorbers of negative energy and therefore should be cleansed daily (if used daily). It has been known to crack when it has stored too much energy, so it is very important to cleanse this crystal! It is said that one who is attracted to this stone is an “old soul” who may have an extensive experience with life through reincarnations. As legend says, when Jet is worn or carried on the body continuously, it is thought to absorb the bearers “soul”. Because of this, these stones were carefully guarded and passed down through long lines of families.
