Jet, also known as Black Amber is not actually an Amber, but rather fossilized coal. Jet is formed when ancient waterlogged wood is compacted by pressure in the deep sea. It is a velvety black stone, surprisingly lightweight for its size. Jet is often used as a protection stone. It is said to have powerful protection energies to ward off evil, violence and psychic attacks. It is also said to protect finances. Use Jet stones to balance the Root Chakra.
