Jasper is a chalcedony that comes in many forms and colours. Jasper is known metaphysically as a stone of gentleness, comfort, and relaxation. When its protective energies are also considered, it's no wonder jasper is sometimes called the "nurturing stone." In the mental and emotional realms, Jasper is primarily about peace and relaxation. It enhances one's ability to relax and come to peace even in difficult situations. This helps bring in wholeness, emotional healing, kindness, and comfort. Jasper also helps to remind one that they are not on their own, that there are people around who want to help and provide love.
