About: Jasper is a form of chalcedony, an impure variety of silica that has been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm.
To the ancient and medieval world, the most highly prized color of jasper was green or (ocean) jasper. The original materials that make up jasper are often fractured and/or distorted into a myriad of beautiful patterns, which lead to their revered stature.
Metaphysical: Ocean jasper is a protective and spiritually grounding stone. It is an excellent talisman for those wanting to ward off negative energy, bring reassurance, and to help restore inner calm.
Ocean jasper is an exceptional stone for healing dis-ease within the emotional system, especially in areas of obsession by balancing out parts of one’s life that have become all-important to the detriment of others. It helps one recognize thought patterns and fixations that have become irrational, and brings the courage needed to express and accept them in order to move forward.
Why you should wear this stone: We use ocean jasper in our base chakra line and our heart chakra line because of its protective spiritual nature, which may help in the alleviation of negative emotional patterns and negative thought patterns.
This stone can be very grounding, providing courage, protection, and clarity for the base chakra. For the heart, that same clarity comes in handy when dealing with negative patterns around love and our relationships. It can be so easy to slip into these negative patterns because they are at least familiar, and sometimes familiarity is more comforting than change, even if it is negative.
This stone can give us the courage and clarity to open our heart up to new relationship patterns while providing protection.
