Jasper, Dalmatian Gemstone Properties

Design Possibilities

Know how you smile whenever you see a "fire engine" dog? This opaque, white jasper spotted with brown and black is one of those "stranger stoppers" that will make people turn around and look back when they walk past you. While jasper may also be multi-colored or striped, its name comes from the Greek and means "spotted stone." It makes me wonder if it wasn't dalmatian jasper the Greeks had seen when they gave a name to this chalcedony. These beads take on a more formal look when combined with black "jade" or black onyx. But, if you want jewelry that is lively, try its various shapes strung in multiple-strands. Dalmatian jasper is so full of life, it practically wiggles.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

Dalmatian jasper is just the stone you need when you want a pick-me-up. Jasper helps us release our tendencies to over think or over analyze things. When you wear it, your mood lifts immediately. I like to wear it to places where people are expecting to have a dull time. The night starts off better and that makes a difference in the outcome of the whole evening.
