Jet is formed from fossilized wood and is a stone of purification and protection. It is able to absorb negativity and process it into clear usable energy. Jet cleanses the base chakra and stimulates the rise of the kundalini. It holds ancient world wisdom, natural power and elemental energy and is a great grounding stone. In Victorian England Jet was widely used in mourning jewelry, rosaries, crosses and carvings. It is said that those who are attracted to this stone are “old souls” who have a long experience of being incarnated on the earth.
