Jet is a unique organic gemstone renowned for its dark, lustrous appearance and rich history. Formed from fossilized wood, often of prehistoric conifer trees, jet has been treasured for millennia for its striking black color and the ease with which it can be carved into intricate designs.

Historically, it was a favored material for mourning jewelry in Victorian times, symbolizing grief and remembrance. Jet has also been used in various cultures for protective amulets and spiritual purposes. Today, it remains a popular choice for jewelry and decorative items due to its timeless elegance and intriguing origins.

Beautiful sheen!

These beads have a beautiful sheen. I look forward to working with them.


I love to make jewelry with jet. It is a very lightweight stone and makes beautiful necklaces that dont pull on the nape of your neck when you wear them.
