Jaspers, in general, are great grounding stones. Some Native American cultures consider Red Jasper to symbolize the blood of the Earth, making it particularly sacred. Red Jasper is full of grounding Earth energy. It can connect one deeply to the vibrations of the Earth, bringing a greater understanding of the necessity of natural events.
Jasper was popular in the ancient world for its medicinal and spiritual values, and has been used for centuries by cultures around the world for its unique properties. Legend has it that jasper would drive away evil spirits and protect against snake and spider bites. In the fourth century, jasper was called "the great rain bringer" and used as a stone of intention and manifestation to procure the favor of the Gods to send rain to nourish the earth and the plant kingdom.
The word "Brecciated" comes from "breccia"--a geology term used to identify rock composed of broken fragments cemented together into a fine-grained matrix. Brecciated jasper is made when the earth melds sharp-angled fragments of stone together.
It is a good stone to use to deflect the EMF energy of computers and other digital devices. Medicinal values include an ability to strengthen the stomach and provide cures to gynecological issues. Brecciated jasper is also thought to provide mental clarity and focus to its wearer.
