About African Turquoise (Jasper):
African Turquoise is a variety of Jasper. Subtle and varied blues, browns, greys, and greens are seen in our natural African Turquoise mala. Jasper is derived from the Greek for “spotted stone”, and is a form of microcrystalline quartz. The finely grained, dense jasper contains up to twenty percent foreign materials that determine its color, streak, and appearance. Jasper was cherished for its beauty and mystical properties since ancient times, and is mentioned in the Bible, used on the Great Wall of Jerusalem, and was treasured throughout ancient Greece. Jasper is found in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Russia, Uruguay and the United States.
Jasper: Grounds mental energies, helps with handling life’s day-to-day details, and promotes healing. Jasper is folklored to bring good health as well as courage and wisdom and be a protective talisman.
Riverstone: Inspires change. It brings resolution to physical or inner processes you are experiencing. Worn by itself, it balances Yin/Yang. Riverstone aids other healing stones in their work.
