Jaspers

Leave a comment

Turquoise & Brown Jasper

Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of quartz.  Jaspers can include up to 20% foreign materials, which account for its wide variety of colours & patterns.  Jasper is found all over the world and has been used for jewel and ornamentation since Palaeolithic times.  The Babylonians believed that Jasper influenced women’s diseases, and was a symbol of childbirth.  The name Jasper comes from the Greek and means ‘spotted stone’ and almost every type claims a wide range of healing powers. Jasper is also known as the “supreme nurturer”.  It sustains and supports through times of stress, and brings tranquillity and wholeness.

Psychologically, Jasper imparts determination to all pursuits.  It brings the courage to get to grips with problems assertively, and encourages honesty with yourself.  It supports during necessary conflict.  Jasper aids quick thinking, and promotes organisational abilities and seeing projects through. It stimulates the imagination and transforms ideas into action.  Jasper is thought to be especially lucky for mother and child during childbirth!! The 11th century Bishop of Rouen, Marbodius, stated that Jasper “placed on the belly of a woman in childbirth relieves her pangs”.  This comes from a time when stones were believed to be alive and have a sex, Jasper being a female stone!
