Jet - gagate
Jet, known also as “gagate”, is a carbon fossil, compact and very light. It is a lustrous black stone which
has a hardness of 2.5-4 (quite soft) and a specific gravity of 1.30-1.35. This stone was
named after the city of Gages in ancient Lykia. Another name of jet is “black amber”.
Jet was known in ancient Egypt, where it was used for making mirrors, in Greece and
Rome they used it for cutting amulets, bracelets and rings. In Medieval times jet was
popular as a talisman and a medicine for migraines, toothache, stomach pains and
epilepsy, and it reached the height of its popularity during the Victorian period.
The history of jet in Russia began in the second part of the 19th century, when the big
deposit was discovered in Siberia, near the city of Irkutsk. Since that time jet was
widely used for carving, making all sorts of souvenirs. The main cathedral in Irkutsk
was decorated with jet.
Even now people believe that jet has magical powers, it protects from nightmares and
helps to overcome one’s fears.
