Jasper is a very nourishing, warm and protective stone no matter what colour you find the jasper in - be it yellow, green, blue, purple or the deep earthy red. Jaspers are the nurturers, the healers and the spirit stones of courage and wisdom. They all carry a strong connection to the Earth's energy, making the jasper healing properties very beneficial for grounding, stability and strength.
Mala Prayer Beads are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This sādhanā (practice) is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads.
