Question: What is the Meaning of Jasper Stone?
Is it good feng shui to wear jasper jewelry? What is the meaning of jasper and how do I know if this is a good stone for me or my home? Thank you!
Answer: The meaning of jasper stone is in the essence of its energy. Jasper is a very nourishing, warm and protective stone no matter what colour you find the jasper in - be it yellow, green, blue, purple or the deep earthy red.

Jasper often has stripes or bands that amplify the healing and earthy energy of this stone.

Popular forms of jasper include bloodstone (a combination of red or yellow jasper and green quartz), brecciated jasper (hematite and jasper together) and mookaite (Australian jasper with purple, soft pink and red colour).

The deeply nourishing, earthy jasper stone was used for thousands of years in many cultures around the world, so yes, it is definitely good feng shui to wear jasper as jewelry. In feng shui jasper is also used for various amulets and feng shui cures such as the mystic knot, pi yao, wu lou, etc.

You can also find many feng shui home decor cures in jasper, from Buddha to elephants, turtles and more. Jasper has a special place in many feng shui cures because it is one of the main stones for period 8 feng shui.

As you can see, jasper sure has a long history of use. However, any piece of jewelry or home decor works best when it is chosen with a specific purpose in mind.

So, how do you know if jasper is good for you and your home?

Generally, you will benefit from the earthy, nourishing essence of jasper if you need more energy, vitality, as well as determination to pursue your goals. Although there are many stones that can help one stay focused and determined - black onyx and hematite are just a few examples - jasper's energy is different.

The energy that jasper provides is full of warmth. This stone helps you understand that you can stay committed and determined without exhausting yourself or ruining your health. Jasper creates a full circle around your body where both yin (feminine) as well as yang (masculine) energies are balanced and supportive of each other.

Jasper is especially helpful for people who easily burn out. It will help achieve a subtle balance between giving and receiving; and can teach how to stay balanced and replenish the inner energy resources. It is an earthy stone that warms one's soul and clears one's mind.

In your home, jasper can be an excellent feng shui stone for any bagua area governed by earth or metal elements. For example, you can place two jasper hearts in the Love & Marriage bagua area (Southwest), or have a jasper bowl in the center of your home.

If you would like to wear jasper as jewelry, best choices will be jewellery pieces that can be worn in areas that are close to first, second or third chakras. Wrist and ankle bracelets, rings and belts with jasper can be excellent choices to ground, protect and nurture your energy.
