Jasper is derived from the Greek work meaning "spotted stone" and can include up to 20% foreign materials, which accounts for the wide variety in colors and patterns. Mook jasper is found in Australia. The color of Mook jasper ranges from creamy white, mustard yellow and deep red to pink with black inclusions. It is a stunning display of color. This jasper hits the MOHS scale at 6.5-7 making it a harder stone.
Mook jasper covers all Chakra and represents the element of Earth like most jasper. Said to support liver health and detoxification. Encourages renewed hope, invigoration and energy. Helps overcome grief or depression. Facilitates deep connection to earth and nature. Reawakens ability to "know" which direction to go or travel in the physical and spiritual realm. Helps align the third and solar plexus to the root Chakra., allowing for intuitive perception.
Honestly I fell in love with this stone for it's truly unique colors and how they almost seem to make me feel soft and relaxed, but has a very dramatic appearance. It's bold and yet calming and inviting.
Wishing you a reawakening this week,
