JASPER a Chalcedony (quartz family) found in almost every colour.
Properties: This stone is a methodical and meticulous worker of practical, down to earth solutions. It has the ability to foster and nurture and its energy is used for grounding and protection. Considered more effective if it is used for long periods of time because it works slowly. Each color of Jasper has additional, specific qualities when used alone. Jasper is very effective when use on the Root Chakra.
Folk Remedies: Jasper is a general tissue regeneration; mineral assimilation; and general healing. Darker colors are more grounding. Suggested to be used for elixirs because it will not over-stimulate any part of the body. Jasper works well in conjunction with Opals. Recommended for executives as an assist in quick thinking. Also helps them endure stress.
Feng Shui: Jasper is used primarily anywhere to help bring change. Used in the Center for balance and grounding and in the West for children, in the Southwest (as a pair) for relationships and in the East for community and family. History: Jasper is chalcedony (SiO2) quartz. Multicolored due to impurities, which will turn the stone yellow, orange, brown and green, are the most popular colors. Jasper has additional metaphysical properties based on its color and specific qualities based on its mineral formation, such as the addition of iron in red jasper or ocean jasper, found close to the sea. Jasper stone was used in ancient Persia and Syria as jewelry, bowls and adornments. Native American traditions use jasper for connecting with the spirit world and for protection when traveling.
