Physically, Fancy Jasper helps with detoxifying the body and increasing blood circulation. It can also alleviate stomach ailments.
In general, Jaspers come in a wide variety of colors, sometimes making them difficult to identify accurately. A type of Chalcedony, Jasper is a protective, nurturing stone that absorbs and transmutes negative energies. Jasper is often used for balancing the subtle bodies and aligning the Chakras. This Jasper crystal is a great aid for those seeking to bring practicality into their life, but not boredom.
