When I graduated from massage school, a very dear friend of mine gave me a piece of Jet, also known as Black Amber or Gem Lignite, for energetic protection and purification.
He said the piece of Jet would absorb negative energy if I carried it in my pocket. He said, “Feel how light it is right now? As Jet absorbs negative energy throughout the day it will become heavier.” I didn’t believe him, until I tried it. I carried the stone in my pocket and sure enough, by the end of the day the feather-light stone felt twice as heavy!
To cleanse and clear the stone, and bring it back to its original state, all I needed to do was place it in the sunlight for a few hours. The sunlight cleansed and cleared the stone and it was once again feather light. I was amazed. I’ve always been attracted to crystals and felt their healing qualities assist me in my work, but Jet is truly remarkable. It offers some pretty concrete evidence that these stones are alive and do help us on a spiritual and energetic level.

Jet is not really a type of amber, it is actually decomposed driftwood, commonly from trees in the Araucariaceae family. It’s a type of lignite, a precursor to coal, and is considered to be a minor gemstone or mineraloid. It is an opaque black stone with a dull, waxy appearance. This is where the expression “jet black” comes from. It’s hard to believe that something so black and dense in appearance can be so feather light.
You may have seen Jet before, as it is used to make many ceremonial and religious items such as rosary beads. Jet has been used by ancient cultures and has been found in burial grounds. There is evidence of it being used in ceremonies and as decorative jewelry.
When I was a child growing up in Catholic school, I was taught by nuns. Back then nuns wore full black robes and habits and part of their custom was to wear a large rosary belt around their waste. It looked like a rosary and it was made of large black beads. I realize now that those large beads were Jet. It was used for protection from all negative energies and to ward off evil.
Jet is a powerful protector against psychic attacks. Psychic attack can be as simple as someone thinking or feeling negatively towards you and they may not realize that it has an effect on you. Some people actually know and intentionally psychically attack someone, but that’s a whole other topic. In any case, while we may not consciously be aware of a particular energy, we may well be in tune with it subconsciously and Jet is a helpful stone against that.

It can be worn as a pendant or necklace to absorb unwanted negative energy and it should be cleared and cleansed each day and ready to be used again and again. Jet can be used to remove energetic attachments to other people and is helpful in healing grief. It gently brings grief to the surface, where it can be released to ease anxiety and depression and calming anxious fearful thinking. As Jet absorbs this energy it can help with an increased sense of ease as life changes, which in turn increases one’s sense of self-reliance, supporting you during times of transition and transformation.
If you use crystals for spiritual and healing support in an alternative therapy, such as Reiki, then Jet can be helpful in alleviating a wide range of ailments such as epilepsy, migraines, colds, lymphatic problems, congestive heart failure, tumors, toothache, stomach pains, menstrual cramps, fertility of male and female, scrofula (lymphatic tuberculosis), clinical depression, manic-depression or bipolar disorder, liver, kidney, and glandular problems.
