Jet (from the Latin gagates, stone of Gages) is an organic mineral formed when extreme oceanic pressure is applied to decaying wood.

Although Jet is the most durable of all charcoals, it still remains relatively fragile. After the death of King Alfred in Victorian England, Jet became so sought after that it was commonly replaced by a black glass substitute named French Jet which was notably worn by Queen Victoria as part of her mourning dress.

A material used in mourning dress up until the 1930’s, faceted Jet quickly became a symbol of glamour due to its lustre and sparkle.
