The Crystal of the Day for Wednesday 28 August 2013 is Mariam (Miriam, Maryam) Jasper. Mariam Jasper was formed when the Himalayas rose into the sky. It is compressed bone, vegetation and shell from an ancient swamp which was compressed by the incredible forces involved in the mountains creation. It is also sometimes called “The Calligrapher’s Stone” (which I believe is wrongly associated as what I have researched, Calligrapher’s stone looks different completely) or “Cobra Jasper”, to name a few.
All jaspers are strong securing, stability stones. It is a powerful protection against things that are not good for you and it eases emotional stresses, making it a wonderful gemstone to have in your home. Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and have personal independence. It also protects from fears in the night.
Mariam Jasper helps keep one cool under severe pressure. It is a alchemist stone, enabling one to transform seemingly hopeless situations into creative positive ones. It also serves to counterbalance the busy modern world by bringing back pleasure in nature. It is considered an amulet for driving long distances, prosperity on business trips and overseas deals. Use Mariam Jasper for long term business decision making and forward planning. It Counters instant gratification that can destabilise a happy relationship, aids the gentle release of karma or trauma from the past, helping you to move forward into the future and is said to ease skin complaints, scar tissue, mobility, and scalp disorders.
