Rough Jet. Price per Kg.
Jet is a hard, black, flat lignite variety that lends itself well to polishing. It comes from coniferous wood that has very gradually fossilized into charcoal.
In Spain we find jet especially in Leon, in Aragon, a little in Galicia.
Since ancient times, jet is also called "black amber", because of its magical properties similar to those of amber: it protects the eyes, makes snakes escape, denounces the presence of the demons and allows to prove the virginity youngsters. Paradoxically, it burns with water and extinguishes with oil.
