The gemstone Jet.
Jet from Canada
2016 And there is still lots for sale. Jet is one of the organic jemstones, and where the expression jet black comes from. This image is a digital image of surface prospected jet from Canada. The thin layer of oxidization causes a variety of colors to appear on the surface of the rough jet. Once the micro thin surface is removed from polishing, the  gemstone Jet has that brilliant “jet black” color that Jet is famous for.

This is Jet, not china coal.

The Jet for sale on this site is not hard coal from China with a softness of 0.9 to 2.49 on the Moh’s scale of hardness. The jet for sale on this site is real Jet, with a Mohs scale of hardness ABOVE 3.0 like the whitby jet site mentions. Most of the Jet for sale here has a Moh’s scale of hardness in the 3.5 to 4.0 range which is far harder than the china coal been mistakenly offered as jet all over.
Coal has a hardness of 1 to 2.49 on the Moh’s scale of hardness, and lots of it is mistakenly offered for sale all over as “jet” even though its only hard coal. Real jet is harder than coal on the Mohs scale of hardness, and has other differences from coal as well. Real Jet can be carved, shaped, cabachoned, put in rings, earings, and other such jewelry. Hard coal is mistakenly offered for sale as jet at ridiculously expensive prices for coal. Coal sells for hundreds of dollars per ton.
when compared to hard coal the jet for sale on this site may seam expensive, but when compared to the price of actual real gemstone quality Jet, elsewhere, the prices here are actually unbelievably low and very reasonable for actual rough gemstones in the kilogram and bigger sizes.

Jet, an amazing gem!

January 31, 2011 by

Hi there! My name is Dave Dowling and this is my personal collection of Jet for sale.
Jet is an amazing gemstone. The jet black color of finished pieces complements any outfit for any occasion. Easy to carve and shape, jet is exquisite  once that earing or cabachon is polished to a brilliant finish.
The jet for sale here is excellent rough ready for any project. I have put up some videos of some pieces so you can see how large they truly are. Most gemstones are sold by the 1/5th of a gram, by the ct. weight. Some of these are so large I measure these gemstones by the pound and kilogram!
I have limited quantity, once it is sold its gone. This jet is from a new source in Canada, surfaced picked in an environmentally friendly manner. So order yours today!
