It was used in times of antiquity for not only protection against the evil eye, but also in times of mourning. You see Jet quite often in antique jewelry. I just love Jet and always have a piece of it in my purse, I feel it is good for protection against others negativity. However, I also carry it with me to use as a worry stone. I find by rubbing my fingers across Jet that the smooth surface promotes a calmness within, especially when I have anxiety. Some say it is useful for headaches, however, I have not experienced this. Much Jet that you see is actually plastic or glass, so be very careful when purchasing, make sure you buy from a dependable source.
