This stone is a coloured impure form of natural silica. Jasper is said to be both invigorating and stabilising, bringing stillness to a troubled mind. It generates an even rhythmic pulse. Jasper is known to absorb negative energy aligning and cleansing the chakras and balancing the yin and yang. Jasper, a form of chalcedony, is an opaque variety of silica and is found in red, yellow, brown or green colours and, although rare, also in blue. Some jasper resembles landscapes and is known as picture jasper. When the colours are layered, the stone is called striped or banded jasper.
Natural gemstones come from minerals, due to being a naturally occurring product the stones may have tiny flaws and colour variations. Cutting and or polishing may also cause variation in colour and size.
