Child with full orbs of heaven-deep blue
Illumined violet,
So richly gentle—touched with dew,
Befringed with glossy jet.

Think kindly of me,
In those moments to memory bestowed?

O blue eyes and jet,
Soft as when parting thy sympathy glowed!

Tall as a mast it was, and stronger than a tower;

Before my little life had lived one little hour.
"Tree-Worship" by Richard Le Gallienne
He wore an old blue shirt the night that first we met,
An old and tattered cabbage-tree concealed his locks of jet;
His footsteps had a languor, his voice a husky tone;
Both man and dog were spent with toil as they slowly wandered home.
"The Shepherd" by Anonymous Oceania
Then jet the blue tent topple, stars rain down,
and god or void appall us till we drown
in our own tears: today we start
to pay the piper with each breath, yet love
knows not of death nor calculus above
the simple sum of heart plus heart.

In science:

Most importantly, for TH28 and RW Aur, the red and blue jet lobes were found to rotate in the same direction.
Rotation of Jets from Young Stars: New Clues from the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph
Values in the blue-shifted jet lobe are less clear, but [NII] and [OI] emission give positive differences consistent with the red-shifted lobe.
Rotation of Jets from Young Stars: New Clues from the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph
Globally, we find evidence that both lobes of the jet rotate in a clockwise direction, looking down the blue-shifted jet lobe towards the source, with a measured radial velocity difference of 10 to 25 km s−1 .
Rotation of Jets from Young Stars: New Clues from the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph
Overall, results show an anti-clockwise rotation looking down the blue-shifted jet lobe towards the source, again with radial velocity differences of 10 to 25 km s−1 .
Rotation of Jets from Young Stars: New Clues from the Hubble Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph
Therefore the sense of rotation of the jets, looking down the blue-shifted lobe towards the star, is clockwise for TH28, and anti-clockwise for RW Aur and LkHα321.

For example, say that the jet redshift moves direct flux from the ultraviolet (UV) region to the blue part of the optical and from the blue part to the red part of the optical.
A Simple Bipolar Jet Model for the Polarization of Core-Collapse Supernovae
In this case, the jet-scattered UV flux that is redshifted into the blue part of the optical will be comparatively very low and even if highly polarized might be insufficient to cause significant polarization of the net flux.
A Simple Bipolar Jet Model for the Polarization of Core-Collapse Supernovae
On the other hand, in the red part of the optical, the polarization should be higher than in the blue part since the jet-scattered flux from the blue part is shifted there.
A Simple Bipolar Jet Model for the Polarization of Core-Collapse Supernovae
Note that the polarization spectrum can only extend as far to the blue as the jet-redshifted blue end of the flux spectrum.

Based on the radiatively cooling jet model, we determine the innermost temperature of the jets to be T0 = 13±2 keV and 16±3 keV (the average of the blue and red jets) for the out-of-eclipse and in-eclipse phase, respectively, from the line intensity ratio of FeXXV Kα and FeXXVI Kα.
