The colours vary widely – including white, green, pink, red, black, blue. The wild polka dots, wavy lines, multi-coloured floret patterns of Ocean Jasper make this a gorgeous and exciting stone.

The positive vibrations of Ocean Jasper make it a stone of joy. It stimulates solar plexus, heart and throat chakras, increases expression of love in words and actions, gently brings into focus the positive aspects of ones life, and it brings relaxation and cooperation to the home or workplace. This powerful stone lifts negativity so one can fully appreciate blessings. Ocean jasper is a very calming and soothing stone, as well as one of the most protective. This jasper is specifically used to align all of the chakras. Ocean jasper encourages the love of oneself and of others, the healing of the emotions and the sense of peace it brings helps us connect to nature and all of the earth. Ocean Jasper attracts the Devics (nature sprites or faerie kingdom), it is used to encourage the acceptance of responsibility and also thought to increase patience.

Physically this stone is thought to be useful in removing toxins from the physical body as well as the aura.

Ocean Jasper is now mined out and its availability becomes more rare. Jasper needs direct contact with the skin, after each use, the stone should be cleaned under warm running water and recharged overnight in a bowl of tumbled hematite stones.

The Crystal of the Day for Tuesday 5 November 2013 is Girasol Quartz aka Girasol Opal. Girasol Quartz (also called girasol opal) is a very ancient mineral found in Madagascar and has powerful energies. This stone can help you feel calm, relaxed, hopeful and optimistic. Girasol can also amplify your ability to be creative, thoughtful and focused in your life. Girasol Quartz brings a sense of balance to the emotions that can increase control over impulsive behaviour. This ability to be in control of your feelings empowers you to clearly think things through and just say no to hasty choices we sometimes regret later.

Metaphysically, girasol is a stone of gentle but powerful energy that can enhance and clarify feelings (especially those connected to love and passion), and allows the bearer to look deep within themselves for true feelings. Girasol is an excellent mineral tool for visualisation, dream paths, and guided direction of energy (such as Reiki). Girasol metaphysically enhances communication and will help the user to speak thoughts that otherwise might be difficult to express. It enhances creativity in artists and business people, and it is a powerful healing stone that firmly yet gently enhances healing of spiritual, emotional and physical wounds. Girasol’s unique capability allows it to connect to a user’s energy, cleanse it and circulate it so that self-healing becomes possible and the user is less dependent on outside energy stimulation. Girasol supports specific healing processes for diabetes, immune system imbalances, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Girasol is not recommended for crystal layouts, but rather it is recommended that the stone be held by the user to establish the energy connection. This stone is commonly used by healers prior to a healing session to encourage energy flow and healing in clients who are particularly blocked. It is also used effectively in distance healing techniques such as those applied by Reiki practitioners.
