Jet is a prized black, shiny gemstone with a long history of being fashioned into jewellery and accessories. Admired throughout the ages from the Neolithic period, Victorian era and roaring twenties, Roman Britain used Jet in pendants and amulets for magical protection against the evil eye.
You will receive one Jet Tumbled Stone Large from the lot pictured size approximately 32-34mm.
Jet is one of the best protective stones to carry around, especially during travel, because it is so lightweight.
As a lignite (a form of rock), Jet originates from highly pressurised decomposed wood and interestingly, under strong magnification the microstructure of the native wood can be seen.
