Red Jasper From Northern Ontario – A peek into Lapidary work from Wicked Stones

Today is Red Jasper day in the Rock Lab

It’s Cold outside.. brrr.. but Rob is still out there in the Lapidary shop working away on pieces of red Jasper that he picked up in his travels in Northern Ontario.

We’ve gone from the bare rough rock, all the way to polishing it to a gleaming shine (it’s sooo pretty!).  The pieces you see in the photo above are about half way through the polishing process.  Here he is working on the buffing wheel to try to give it more of a shine.

Here’s a picture of how it’s coming along.

It’s turning out really amazing so far!

Red Jasper is naturally this colour – no dye has been used to create these rich powerful hues of red, black and white.  If you are drawn to this gem, it’s good for helping to combat against exhaustion and for maintaining physical stamina. In Teutonic legend, the hilt of the magical sword of Siegfried (the dragon slayer and ill fated lover of the mystic Brunhild) was inlaid with red jasper to give him courage.  I find that it also helps to pick me up (mentally) when I’m feeling low and blahhhh….

Red Jasper has a stabilizing effect on the wearer’s energy keeping them calm and balanced – now who can’t use a little of “THAT” these days!?…

It gets you going on days you need a little extra boost and the ability to stay focused no matter what the day throws at you.

Want to recall your dreams? Try putting this gem under your pillow at night.

Red Jasper is a powerful protection stone against psychic and physical threats and will return negative energy to the sender.

Currently this is the section that I have all my Red Jasper located (click here) – a new window will open.  If you don’t see a lot? That just means we are low in stock…

I hope you enjoyed this wee peek into our rock shop…

Cheers!
