Green Jasper, throughout the centuries, was used for driving away ghosts, evil spirits, witchcraft and harmful fantasies. It was very protective against any venomous creatures and provided good health, healing diseases of the stomach, chest and lungs. Until today Green Jasper is being used by metaphysical practitioners for its ability to balance obsessive tendencies and restore harmony to the emotional body. Green Jasper is a 'growth crystal', a powerful conduit of the earth's Life Force of birth, development, creation, and of the power of nature's constant renewal. It brings a calm and harmonious energy for meditation and it's perfect for grounding and centering at the beginning of a ritual.
