Rainbow Jasper is a blend of burgundy, gold and brown colors in broad banding patterns, resembling a rainbow.
It is called a "sustaining stone," and thought to be helpful in times of emotional fatigue or stress. Used for its properties to both calm and sooth, it is believed to be beneficial in collecting one's thoughts so as to help one feel more secure and relaxed when making decisions.Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and have personal independence.
It also protects from fears in the night. All jaspers help balance the emotional energy in the body.
Jaspers were worn by Egyptian priests in amulets covered with inscriptions from their Book of the Dead and wrapped up with mummies for protection in the afterlife.
The Minoans of Crete carved seals for the palace of Knossos of jasper.
Jasper was the 12th stone in the breastplate of the Hebrew High Priest, and is said to be the foundation stone of New Jerusalem.
Some Native American tribes used jasper to dowse for water and to call rain.
Again, like other jasper gemstones, rainbow jasper is a chalcedony and member of the quartz group.
The broad swirls and patterns of colors are actually finely divided minerals such as clay and iron oxide.
