About Acoma Jet

Acoma jet is a solid, durable type of lignite coal that originated from wood material. It is mined around the Acoma Pueblo region, among other places, thus the name Acoma Jet. It is very popular with Indian artists for carving fetishes. It is also used for inlaying jewelry but usually is not used in jewelry stone sets. Jet is typically very lightweight and it is sometimes mistaken for plastic. Read about stones.
