Jet is an opaque crystal with a deep velvety black color. It may have cracks, and in its natural form can be gritty and layered with a dull, resinous, or waxy coating. When tumbled, jet has a high, glassy shine and can look silver-black. It is a very lightweight crystal.
Jet is commonly used as a stone of protection, yet it also carries some wonderful healing properties, including pain relief for headaches/migraines and enhanced healing of traumatic injuries. Working almost like an energetic filter, 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 an important stone for the medicine bag.
Also known as a stone of good luck, Jet makes a great gift for the person starting a new job or beginning a new business pursuit.
Jet can bring clarity to a confusing situation by bringing unique insights from variant perspectives. Those who are struggling through multiple trials and tribulations will appreciate Jet's supportive energies.
Jet can be used to cleanse other crystals by placing them in a bowl with several smaller pieces of Jet.
Jet can also be helpful for those experiencing an overabundance of negative energies or emotions, and has traditionally been used as a stone to alleviate grief. Not only does it draw off negative vibrations, but Jet can help the victim of these vibes to understand their original purpose and the lesson to be learned. Sensitives or empaths who suffer from exposure to negativity in the environment should carry a piece of Jet with them while exposed.
Jet can facilitate the release of negative behavior patterns and old emotional attachments, freeing the individual for rapid personal growth. Those suffering from nervousness and hyperactive children may find a calming benefit from Jet, as it integrates higher vibrations into the lower chakras and brings a soothing sense of wholeness to the individual.
Jet is known to work synergistically with Moldavite, and can assist those who are trying to do void meditation work. It can be used in combination with virtually all other stones for healing purposes. Jet is a great ally to all on the spiritual path, due to its perfect combination of protective vibrations.
