Known as “the rain bringer,” Green Jasper, when properly consecrated, was considered the ultimate and most reliable stone for this purpose. The 4th century author of Lithica claims, “The gods hearken to the prayers of whoe’er the polished grass-green jasper wears; his parched globe they’ll satiate with rain and send showers to soak the thirsty plain.” [Kunz, 90][101 Hall, 112]
Green Jasper was equally credited throughout the centuries for driving away evil spirits and ghosts, harmful fantasies, and witchcraft. It was particularly protective against venomous creatures, kept one from drowning, and warded off sorrow. It provided good health, made one amiable and brave, healed fever and edema, diseases of the stomach, lungs and chest, and increased fertility, aiding women throughout their pregnancy and childbirth. Green Jasper is still utilized today by metaphysical practitioners for these properties, and for its ability to balance obsessive tendencies and restore harmony to the emotional body.
