Stones: Jasper

Jasper is an incredibly versatile and beautiful stone. There are MANY different types of Jasper currently available, and each is said to possess different qualities and uses. For example, brown Jasper can be used for grounding, red is said to be protective, green enhances general healing, and yellow Jasper enhances mental processes.

It?s name comes from the Greek word ?iaspis? dating back to as early as 20,000 BC. In later times, Jasper amulets were engraved with spells and passages from the Book of the Dead by the ancient Egyptians and buried with mummies.

While both Jasper and Agate are chalcedony (which means any form of microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline quartz), in common practice, only single color types are sold under the name ?Chalcedony.? The rest of the group are sold under their individual names.

Jasper is generally named for its color, patterns, or place found. For example, Brown or Picture Jasper is named because it is said that its patterns will create a picture.

Jasper in general is a stabilizing stone. It assists in the reduction of insecurity, fear and guilt. It has also been used for wasting diseases, including cancers. Jasper is said to stimulate hormonal balance, and strengthens the liver, gallbladder, and bladder. Crushed jasper is used in making potions that protect against poison.

Poppy Jasper helps to bring a positive outlook, is a powerful physical healer, and stills the mind.

Bloodstone is a member of the Jasper family. It has several legends associated with it, such as the legend that the blood from Jesus? wounds dripped onto the ground creating this stone. However, it is known to have existed for well before that time, being used by ancient Egyptians and Greeks as a healing stone. It was powdered and mixed with honey to heal tumors or stop heavy bleeding.
