This mineral has been known as the supreme nurturer. It acts as a reminder that one is not here, on this physical plane, just for one's self, but is also here to bring joy and substance to others, assisting others to release the bonds of constraint.
Jasper was often worn by shamans to provide protection. It holds an aspect of solar energy and a connection to the solar plexus chakra which also helped shamans in their magical practices. The jasper which contains a yellow color was used to assist and to protect during times of travel–spiritual or physical. Jasper which contains the red color was thought to induce health and rebirth, bringing freshness in ideas and strategies to the holder. Jasper containing the blue color was used to connect one with the after worlds.
Picture jasper exhibits a hidden message and/or picture from the past.
