The overall feeling of Jasper is one of connection to the earth and in turn to us the children of the earth. It supports us with its earthy colors and its beauty. To behold such beauty elevates one out of the doldrums and focuses the mind on higher thoughts!
The ancient Egyptians used Jasper in carved scarabs to increase their sexual energy. Too bad we can't ask them if it worked! It their longevity as a race is an indication it did have a quite amazing effect. The Bible lists Jasper as the first foundation stone of the New Jerusalem as it was considered a direct gift from God. Natives in both America as well Asia see Jasper as a powerful, effective healer as well as a maker of rain.
