An Earth element stone, Jasper is aligned with the electromagnetic energies of the planet and allows the physical body to resonate into a more present being. It promotes the celebration of moments of isolation to absorb, reflect, and connect with these energies and encourages an awareness of the spiritual connection we hold with all living things. Known as the “Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort and security, strength and healing. Its presence balances the aura to a level of wholeness and peace, and acts as a reminder that one is not here on the physical plane simply for oneself, but to bring joy and substance to others.

Historically, Jasper is traceable to all ancient peoples and civilizations. Worn by shamans, priests and kings, it was considered sacred and a powerful protection stone, for both the physical world and in the spiritual realm. Amulets of Jasper were carved by the Egyptians with special symbols or inscriptions from the Book of the Dead and buried with mummified remains for safe passage in the after life. It was highly employed in the glyptic arts of many cultures for engraving cylinder seals, signet rings, and special talismans depicting astrological and religious images. It was listed in the Bible as the twelfth stone in the Breastplate of Aaron, the Jewish High Priest, and the apostle Peter is supposed to have derived his name from Jasper, the rock upon which Christ would build his church. Jasper has also been known since antiquity as “the rain bringer” and was highly regarded as a stone for dowsing.
