Jet or Gagat - A fossil wood derived from mud embedded trees that decayed under extreme pressure. Due to its good carvability, Jet was used to craft jewelry and objects already in the pre-Christian period.
Beotius, the personal physician of Caesar, ascribed Jet even a whole lot of healing properties. It should protect against "the evil eye" or cure epilepsy and toothache.
The heyday of Jet jewelry was in the Victorian era before the jet deposits became rare.
