Jasper is known as the “supreme nurturer” and a primary “protection” stone. It sustains and supports during times of stress and brings tranquility and wholeness. Used in healing, it unifies all aspects of your life. Jasper reminds people to help each other. Jasper aligns the chakras and facilitates shamanic journeys and dream recall. It provides protection and grounds energies in the body. It absorbs negative energy and cleanses and aligns the aura. Jasper balances yin and yang and aligns the physical, emotional and mental bodies with the etheric realm. It also clears electromagnetic and environmental pollution, including radiation. Psychologically Jasper imparts determination to all pursuits and brings the courage to solve problems assertively and encourages honesty with yourself. It aids quick thinking and promotes organizational abilities and seeing projects to the finish. Jasper is an opaque variety of chalcedony that may also include traces of quartz and opal. Jaspers, however, have so much variation in color and pattern that they are given different trade names to distinguish the stones further. For example, moukaite, leopard skin, silver leaf, and ocean jaspers all look very different from each other, even though they are all members of the jasper family. And to confuse things even more, colors could vary even within each variety. This characteristic variation in color and pattern has earned jasper the nickname “Mother of All Stones.”
Rainforest Jasper or Australian Rainforest Jasper is more specifically known geologically as Rhyolite and is becoming more difficult to obtain. Rhyolite, a rock made up of quartz, feldspar, mica, and hornblende, is very closely related to granite. The difference between the two is that while granite forms below the surface of the earth, rhyolite is a volcanic rock that forms when magma is expelled from below the surface of the earth as lava and then cools rapidly. The Rhyolite is a marbled green color with deep burgundy, brown and has inclusions of clear to translucent quartz that allow a view of the interior of the stone. It is known as a stone of resolution and perseverence. It is said to help communication of all kinds, and helps one listen easily and without distorting the message one is hearing. It is also a wonderful stone for meditaiton. Rainforest Jasper balances the Yin/Yang (masculine and feminine) energies. It can help one allow other people into their lives, even if one has been reclusive or solitary. It is also a stone of protection. Physically, Rainforest Jasper is used for cleansing the liver, regeneration, and general healing. It is related to and helpful with the solar plexus chakra primarily, and also the throat chakra.
