Jet is a very hard form of natural carbon – close, in mineral composition, to coal. It is, in fact, fossilised wood from the ‘monkey-puzzle tree’. It is used for protection and is known as the ‘stone of the witches’. Worn around the neck, usually with Amber, it protects from the entities of darkness, against illness and violence. There is a lot of superstition surrounding this mineral and it is said that those attracted to it are ‘old souls’.
During circle work, it is believed that wearing Jet guards the physical body allowing safe spiritual travelling. Believed to dispel fears, break bonds and negative thought patterns, protect the wearer and associated with the Mother Earth.
