Jet, also known as black Amber is not actually an Amber, but rather fossilized coal. Jet is formed when ancient waterlogged wood is compacted by pressure in the deep sea. It is a velvety black stone, surprisingly lightweight for its size. Jet is often used as a protection stone and is said to have very powerful protection energies to ward off evil, violence, illness, curses and psychic attacks. It is also said to protect finances. Wear Jet to ease the pain during times of mourning. Use Jet stones to balance the Root Chakra.
