Jasper is a dense, opaque, micro crystalline variety of Quartz. Jasper is colored by oxides of iron and known for its deep earthy tones of red, yellow, brown and green, sometimes in shades of blue or purple, and displays wonderful contrasts in its banding, inclusions, “pictures,” and small circular patterns.
Jasper is known as the “supreme nurturer”. It sustains and supports through times of stress, and brings tranquility and wholeness. Jasper provides protection and absorbs negative energy. It balances yin and yang. It encourages honesty with one's self. Provides courage to assertively tackle problems. Aids quick-thinking and promotes organisational abilities. Jasper stimulates the imagination and transforms ideas into action.
This was perfect for what I needed so I decided to get a selection of different Jasper for Ravens and share what this wonderful stone can do.
If you are drawn to one, please follow the link to an amazing site called the Crystal Vaults which has a huge amount about each variety - well worth taking time to read.
I will post a piece about each stone with a photo as a separate blog post otherwise, this will be too long to read!
