Highly polished tumbled red jasper, fine grade crystals from South Africa.
When used for its metaphysical healing properties red jasper is a stone of power that's fiercely protective. It can provide gentle stimulation, grounding energy and will help bring problems to the surface before they escalate.
Jasper works well as a worry bead to help calm emotions and minimise anxiety. It's particularly effective when dealing with stressful and difficult situations. Associated with the root chakra which maintains mental and physical health, red jasper calms an overactive mind and can help focus attention on matters of importance that tend to be pushed to one side.
The brick red colour of red jasper is caused by impurities of iron most likely in the form of hematite.
The ancient Egyptians considered it to be a stone of power because its colour resembled blood.
Weights and sizes of these red jasper crystals varies slightly from piece to piece.
