Red Jasper Crystals
Red Jasper Crystals for Healing
Superior grade red jasper crystals with brick red colour and distinctive yet subtle markings. When used for its metaphysical properties red jasper is a powerful healer and highly protective. It can provide gentle stimulation, grounding energy and will help bring problems to the surface before they escalate. It works well as a worry bead to help calm emotions and minimise anxiety when dealing with stressful and difficult situations. Associated with the root chakra which maintains mental and physical health, red jasper calms an overactive or excitable mind and can help focus attention on important matters that are repeatedly pushed to one side.
Red jasper is an opaque stone that's a combination of the minerals quartz and chalcedony whose colour is caused by impurities of iron.
Jasper dates back thousands of years and references to it have been made in Greek, Hebrew, Assyrian and Latin literature. It's mentioned in the Bible (Exodus 28.20) as being one of the gemstones in the High Priest breastplate which was a sacred garment worn by Aaron the first Jewish high priest. The Ancient Egyptians considered it to be a stone of power because of its resemblance to the colour of blood. With that said, in historical texts the word iaspis was used to describe the stone that today is believed to be jasper. There is however some uncertainty because iaspis was described as being a transparent to translucent material whereas jasper is almost always opaque. It was also frequently referred to as a green stone similar to jade and emerald when in fact the stone known as jasper today can occur in a variety of different colours.
Weights and sizes of these fine grade red jasper crystals varies slightly from piece to piece.
