Red jasper is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 6.5 to 7. The name Jasper is derived from a Greek word meaning “spotted stone.” Jaspers can include up to 20% foreign materials, which account for its wide variety of colors and patterns. Red Jasper is found in Brazil, the USA and other countries. Red Jasper can help enhance one’s endurance and stamina and can work overtime to increase the amount of chi, or life force, in one’s energetic field. It strengthens the root chakra and deepens one’s connection to the Earth. It enhances memory, especially of dreams or other inner experiences. Its vibrational pattern is so stable that it tends to stabilize one’s own energies if one wears or carries it or keeps it in the environment. Such stabilization can lead to good health, balanced emotions, truthful expression and just actions.

This stone has a kind of down-to-earth nobility that simply rubs off on the owner. Red Jasper does its work gradually, but it offers the advantage that the gains one makes are more permanent than those achieved with different stones or other methods.
