Stone for Natural Cleansing

Jet has been referred to as "black amber" in the past. Jet is an organic gemstone and not a mineral. It has been formed from old wood that experienced high pressures. Though it is not quite like amber, they do have a similar history in that it has been traded and used for jewelry or talismans for centuries.


Us and the Stone

Jet, unsurprisingly, is pretty popular. It is unique as an organic gemstone. Some people have been named after the stone with some popular variations, such as "Jett." It is a short, powerful, but uncommon name that deserves more use. Jet has been so popular that people describe deep-black as jet-black. Jet, as a stone, has been associated with the name Julius. Julius is another powerful name associated, of course, with Julius Caesar, a powerful figure. Julius is also commonly associated with Pope Julius II, also known as the Warrior Pope, another figure of immense power. Jet has also found popularity in rock, as Joan Jett remains as the cool Queen of Rock. Jet has planetary influence with Saturn and despite its relationship with power, jet actually signifies sorrow if found in a dream. Nonetheless, it is a popular gemstone, particularly among men. Black is a cool colour and Jet is a cool name.
