Jasper is a type of chalcedony that is a microcrystalline variety of quartz. These stones are characterised by an abundance of colours and different patterns, making each one unique and exclusive. Various stains appear on these minerals because other minerals, ash, or sediments enter the crystal structure. The name jasper is derived from the Latin "iaspidem" or the old French "jaspre".
This crystal is known worldwide as the "supreme nurturer". The essential spiritual qualities that all jasper crystals exude are peace, tranquillity and serenity. The crystal will give its wearer feelings of comfort and fullness, optimism and help eliminate various forms of fear.
Through Jasper, the mother earth gives us, her children, her hand and leads thru the way of life with encouragement, showing whatever happens - we have a strong back to it. The crystal will absorb negative thoughts that cause self-doubt, stress and confusion. It will also help people who are inclined to dream, to be here and now at the moment. The key is to understand that living is necessary now, not nurturing thoughts for the future, which is very abstract and constantly changing.
