DVH 12.5g Genuine Whitby Jet Polished Specimen Carbon Crystal Fossil Fuel Jewel (5219)

This listing is for the exact parcel of natural, beach washed, genuine jet pictured. It was collected on the beaches of Whitby, England. Weight is in the title and there is a picture of it in my hand to help show the size. I get my rough from two suppliers who live in Yorkshire and have much experience with this material. There are no "mines" for the Whitby material and the only source is the various grades found on the beaches. The material from Whitby is world renowned as the blackest, hardest, and shiniest of all jet varieties.

This material is an estimated 180 million year old fossil wood. Jet is a kind of gem grade lignite coal that has been used in beads, jewelry, carvings and ornament by humans for over 15,000 years. In Roman times it was worn as jewelry by the Galli, the Trans Priestesses who honored Cybele, the Great Mother Goddess, thus it is associated with Trans Power and Pride. Jet reached its greatest popularity during Victorian times as traditional mourning jewelry. For this reason it is still associated metaphysically with alleviating grief and depression. It is also said to help with financial stability. While the "energy" of other crystals and stones can't really be measured, the energy of jet can be measured in BTU's and joules of actual energy because it's a fossil fuel jewel!
