Spiritual Growth & Healing with Jasper Stone
Jasper, although not the most popular stone, is a very unique stone with tons of healing benefits for all of us to enjoy.
In this article we are going to unveil the meaning, history & healing benefits of Jasper Stone!
WHAT IS JASPER STONE?
Jasper is an aggregate mineral that contains quartz as well as chalcedony and other minerals.
It comes in many colors (yellow, green, blue, purple) due to the various impurities that may be contained, but the red form is very common due to the presence of iron.
It is easy to carve and polish and can be used for many different decorative items.
Jasper often has stripes or bands that are said to amplify the healing and earthy energy of this stone.
Popular forms of jasper include bloodstone (a combination of red or yellow jasper and green quartz), brecciated jasper (hematite and jasper together) and mookaite (Australian jasper with purple, soft pink and red colors).
