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,
