Magical/Ritual Lore: American Indians utilized jasper in rain-attracting ceremonies, hence its name "rainbringer." It was also used by the early inhabitants of the United States in divination. A green jasper which had been engraved with the image of a dragon surrounded by rays was worn by an ancient Egyptian king, Nechepsus, to strengthen his digestive tract.
Magical Uses: Jasper is a common stone, an opaque variety of chalcedony, which is a form of quartz. Found in a wide range of colors-red, brown and green being quite common-it has been used in magic since the earliest times. Generally, jasper is worn or carried to promote mental processes and to restrain dangerous desires or whims which could lead to hazardous situations. It is also a protective stone, against both physical and nonphysical hazards. A piece of jasper held in the hand during childbirth guards the mother and her child. It is also worn to relieve pain, especially during childbirth. Perfectly carved arrowheads of jasper are worn to attract luck to its wearer. Each color has its own corresponding magical nature and uses.
Red jasper was engraved with images of lions or archers and carried to guard against poison and to cure fevers. A fine protective stone, it is utilized in defensive magic, for it sends negativity back to the original sender. It is also carried or used during healing and health spells. Red jasper is worn by young women to promote beauty and grace.
