Jasper, Fancy Gemstone Properties
Fancy jasper is a jasper of fairly scrumptious colors: mauves, lilacs, creams and greens all mixed together. The word "fancy" is related to whims, visions and fantasies, especially those related to romance. It's a perfect name for this jasper. I especially like to combine it with solid colored beads in the color I want to accent. Green aventurine (or the dark green or emerald shades, depending on my preference) is a stunning accent for the green. Lavender or deep purple amethyst highlights the mauve and lilac shades. Add sterling silver and Austrian crystal beads in colors that accent or complement your favorite colors and you're ready to party. Your customers will love it.
Jasper is always regarded as a stone that gives a sense of well-being. Fancy jasper intensifies and lightens that feeling. In fact, it's referred to as "the party stone." It is especially helpful for people whose male energies are extreme. Like dalmatian jasper, it helps people lighten up and enjoy themselves, but fancy jasper's subtler, blended colors make for a quieter kind of partying. Think nightclub rather than country western dancing. Be forewarned, however, you're going to feel like cutting loose wherever you wear it.
