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.”
Coral-- is a tentacled skeletal creature with microscopic plants living inside its soft tissues. When it reproduces, the new life forms remain attached to their parents, building reefs. At the same time the plants go on living inside them and drawing sustenance from the sunlight. Coral's greatest spiritual value is that it is like a wise teacher. It teaches us to value life and our place in it. It shows us the importance of living so that we make the world a good place for the children and grandchildren that follow. A beautiful symbol of the importance of creatures and plants living harmoniously together.
In Christian symbolism the Starfish represents the Virgin Mary (Stella Maris which means Star of the Sea) who lovingly creates safe travel over troubled waters and is also seen as an emblem of salvation during trying times. The star as well as the Starfish are seen as celestial symbols and as such, they represent infinite divine love. In addition to love, the Starfish also holds characteristics such as guidance, vigilance, inspiration, brilliance and intuition. Also according to legend, starfish are reflections of stars in the sky inhabiting the ocean floor. Symbolizing rebirth, starfish have a remarkable ability for regeneration. If a starfish is cut in half, two starfish will grow. An illustration of equality and teamwork, each of the limbs of the starfish work together for the benefit of the whole.
