Jet is very light fossilized wood; about the weight of Amber. It works on the Root Chakra. Jet is grounding and protecting, and it will actually protect against violence. Jet is also very calming. This is a "crystal" that is of use in the world of business, especially in regard to financial matters, bringing skill to these endeavors. It works on fear and helps with illness and depression.
|WEARING CRYSTALS vs. WORKING WITH THEM IN OTHER WAYS|
Crystals are a very large part of my life, and I am lucky enough to be surrounded by crystals! When a crystal is touching you all of the time, you are getting the energy of the crystal constantly. I wear several pendants, so I literally wear my medicine bag around my neck. I think this is the very best use of a crystal! Healing crystals do not do you a lot of good if they are sitting on a shelf. You should be touching them as much as possible! Working with them by holding them in your hand or placing them on your body is good, too, as is holding a crystal during meditation.
When my life is about to change, I usually know it is coming, because I feel a very strong need to change my pendants. When I no longer need to wear a pendant or other piece of jewelry, they sometimes literally fall off my body. Over the years, I have worn many different combinations of crystals, and I have enjoyed them all. I seem to wear at least six pendants, but it has been as many as twelve at times. Jewelry is an excellent way to work with your crystals!
