Jet is a type of fossilized wood found throughout the world.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

This stone is closely associated with protection and is believed to ward off negative energies, making it a popular choice in various magical traditions, including Wicca and Druidry.

Jet has a strong grounding energy, helping practitioners connect with the Earth’s energy and promoting stability and balance in their lives.

In the realm of healing, jet is considered effective for alleviating anxiety and providing emotional support, and it’s also used to enhance psychic abilities in divination practices.

When it comes to caring for jet, it should be periodically cleansed under running water to maintain its energy-clearing properties and prevent it from absorbing negativity.

History and Folklore

The ancient Greeks wore jet to honor Cybele.

Jet was popular as mourning jewelry worn in the Victorian period. Queen Victoria wore it when she was in mourning for Prince Albert.

Wives have carried jet to protect their sailor husbands ever since the Vikings first set sail.

Associations

Traditions

Jet is considered to be quite protective. Placing a piece of jet to face the outer door of your home or business will keep negative energies away.

The burning of jet is said to banish ghosts, demons, and spirits.

Jet is traditionally set in silver.

Healing and Magickal Uses

Body: Relieves pain. Reduces swelling and inflammation.

Mind: Protects against anxiety. Relieves sorrow and fear. Balances mood swings.

Magick: Protects against psychic vampires. Guards against violence. Protects against nightmares. It can be used to open a doorway to other dimensions.

Care and Cleansing

Suffumigate often to cleanse or use a singing bowl. Bury in the Earth to recharge.

Do not give away once you have worn it as it is said to absorb part of the soul of its owner.
