Unlike many of the other stones used in magic, jet is actually fossilized Jurassic-era driftwood that has transformed into lignite coal. It comes in very handy in talismans and jewelry because it can be polished to a mirror-like sheen. The energy of jet can be used to purify and protect, and jet is often associated with grief; the Victorians used it to make mourning brooches and rosaries. Today, you can use jet to protect against evil and psychic attacks.
