Jasper is a diverse and versatile gemstone, cherished for its wide array of colours, patterns, and healing properties. It is a form of chalcedony, a microcrystalline variety of quartz, and is known for its opaque and smooth appearance.

Mohs scale

Jasper has a hardness of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale. This means it is fairly hard and can scratch minerals rated 6 and below, such as orthoclase, fluorite, calcite, gypsum, and talc. However, it can be scratched by minerals that are harder, such as topaz, corundum, and diamond.

Healing

Jasper is widely used in crystal healing practices to balance physical, emotional, and spiritual energy. It is believed to support physical health, enhance energy flow, and aid in detoxification. Jasper's nurturing energy provides comfort and support during times of stress or trauma, helping to restore a sense of calm and peace.  However, each type of Jasper has its own inherent qualities and benefits.

Cleansing

Moonlight & Sunlight: Place your Jasper outside or on a windowsill where it can absorb the light of the moon overnight. Full moon nights are particularly powerful for this method. Leave your Jasper in direct sunlight for a few hours. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade some crystals' colours, but Jasper can handle short periods of sunlight.

Smudging: Use sage, palo santo, or other cleansing herbs to smudge your Jasper. Pass the crystal through the smoke several times

Salt: Place your Jasper in a bowl of sea salt or Himalayan salt for several hours. Avoid direct contact with salt if you're concerned about possible scratching. Instead, place the Jasper on a bed of salt or in a sealed container surrounded by salt. 

If you use the crystal regularly cleanse once a week. For occasional users, once a month is advisable. If you are into crystal healing, cleanse after each use.
