I purchased a ring. It is very beautiful! I think it is a leopardskin jasper or orbicular rhyolite. I was told it was a crystal. Is it a crystal or mineral? What is the difference? The seller also said the crystal picks us even though we think we choose it? Please advise. I am for choosing balance and harmony and positiveness. Does this Stone have any negative affiliation. I don't want to entertain anything that is evil or is used in negative or the occult. I think the bible speaks of jasper. Please advise or send a reference to where I can find o. Thank you for your time.¬†
Thanks for your inquiry.¬† I'd first like to direct you to the link for our metaphysical directory.¬† It's a great resourse for many crystals and stones.¬† I've included the link below.¬† Just enter leopardskin jasper and rainforest rhyolite into the search box to receive more information including metaphysical properties.
Crystals are defined as a colorless transparent quartz or rock crystal. Crystals have a symmetrical internal structure with geometrically arranged planes and external faces that form patterns.¬† Crystals have "faces" and geometrical patterns.
Rocks are formed in masses made up of minerals (usually they don't display a geometric pattern to the eye..)¬†¬†
Stones by themselves don't carry negative energy.¬† Stones are energy, pure energy from the earth.¬† We, humans, are also energy.¬† When we're attracted to a particular object, it's just energy communicating with energy.¬† So negative energy is really about the "perception" of how we want to experience the object or thing we're attracted to or are attracting.¬† So, if you're attracted to the stone, trust your inner voice.¬† It's telling you that there's a connection (energetic, subtle ) between you and the stone.¬† Open to it to experience!¬† Have fun with it!¬†
As far as the occult, I would define occult¬† as hidden, secret, mysterious.¬† To work with occult means to seek the truth about things hidden or mysterious.¬† Many people are confused by this concept.¬† The only thing that we fear about the occult is fear of the mysterious - that which is beyond human understanding.¬† Have faith in yourself that you made a good choice in the stone you chose.
Love and Light to you an your new stones!
