More Information About Jasper:
Jaspers are primarily quartz (silicon dioxide, or SO2) which has been broken down and reformed within the earth, often picking up traces of other minerals in the process. More complex jaspers may even include veins or small pieces of other minerals. Some jaspers are actually agates, rhyolites, or other types of stones. In general, jaspers are associated with grounding and connection to Mother Earth. The heavily patterned ones are often also associated with creativity and mental focus.
Jasper comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns, many named for plants and animals. These names not only describe the stone’s appearance, they add meaning to the stone’s uses as well. Leopardskin jasper is particularly associated with animal communication — which makes a lot of sense, as leopards themselves have long been seen as messengers. Dalmatian jasper’s associations extend to its properties; it’s fun, loyal, and cheers you up when you need a friend. As you might guess, elephant skin jasper ties in with memory and wisdom. Across many cultures and times, we’ve come to see and make use of many connections between plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms.
