“Jasper – the grounding stone of good energy and joy”
Hi and welcome to Wicca Now. As you may already know, Wicca Now is a site where Amaria and I write about all things Witchcraft, Wicca and Magick. Lately, we’ve been covering a lot of crystal related topics, like this post on crystal witchcraft, this guide to crystal correspondences or this article on citrine. Today I thought we’d focus on another beautiful crystal, namely jasper.
Jasper is a common stone that can be found in a variety of colours. A form of chalcedony, the stone has a long history of use. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans worked with jasper to fashion carvings, seal stones, jewellery and even mosaics. It is even said that the ancient Egyptian king, Nechepsus wore an amulet made of Jasper to help stimulate his digestive tract. The stone is generally multicoloured but can also be spotted or feature wavy bands. It can be found in almost all colours and ranges from opaque to translucent. Its lustre can range from dull to waxy.
