Jet is a black or dark brown variety of coal called lignite. It is a combination of carbon plus hydrocarbon compounds with a hardness of 3 to 4. Its name is believed to be derived from the name of the town and river Gagas in ancient Turkey, where it or a similar material was found. Jet was formed by the lithification of submerged driftwood in sea-floor mud. The northeast coast of England has long been the source of the world’s finest Jet, but it has also been found in the United States, Poland, France, Germany, Spain, India and Russia. Jet has the property, like Amber, of becoming electrically charged when rubbed with wool or silk.
