But how do i tell if jet is jet and what is jet?
G’day; Jet is a variety of very hard coal, much used for mourning
jewellery in Victorian times. You can test by heating a needle and
touching the bead in a unobtrusive place. If it really is jet then
it will smell of burning coal.
I keep finding more and more uses for needles pushed eye first into a
piece of wooden dowel for a handle. I have several of varying
thicknesses; they are very cheap. – Cheers now,
