Jasper is a form of Quartz that has changed several times through natural reheating within the Earth. This crystallization process creates a wide range of colors, patterns and inclusions in the Jasper family. Jasper is known as a nurturing stone, providing support during times of stress and illness. Jasper can provide the courage to assertively tackle problems with practical, down-to-earth solutions. Used at the Root Chakra, Jasper is a grounding stone, helpful for those who feel spacey.
