Premium grade leopardskin jasper tumbled stones. This colourful and attractive polished stone comes from the state of Chihuahua in north west Mexico.
Although widely known as a variety of jasper it is in fact an orbicular rhyolite. Rhyolite and jasper are not exactly the same but for the purpose of marketing, leopardskin jasper sounds far more appealing than orbicular rhyolite. Orbicular simply refers to the stone's orb-like or spherical markings. Rhyolite is a volcanic igneous rock.
Leopardskin jasper exhibits distinctive markings and colours that can vary from light shades of brown to deep reds and even orange. In crystal healing it's said to attract energies into your life that will enable you to move on from past traumas and mental scars caused through discipline in early life. It's a particularly suitable crystal for those who work with the skin, in a physically dangerous environment or with animals. The energies of leopardskin jasper may however be too strong for small or younger animals.
Leopardskin jasper crystals make great gifts for younger rock and mineral collectors and as with all tumbled stones from our collection, they come in a colourful pouch.
Empathic warriors are stones which have at some point in time sustained some kind of damage, usually a chip or fracture. With rocks and minerals having evolved over millions of years we do not believe in throwing them away. These pieces are available to buy at a significantly reduced price. Empathic warriors are not always available. More information can be found in our article on empathic warrior crystals.
