Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Rock Type: Dragon’s Blood Jasper is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In the case of Dragon’s Blood Jasper it is a Chert, a fine-grained sedimentary rock composed of micro- or cryptocrysalline quartz.  Chert is usually gray or brown, but occasionally it is green or red, usually due to traces of iron in the sediment.  In this case, the rock’s green coloring is actually from chromium.  When found in its purest form it is a phyllosilicate mineral called Fuchsite. The red inclusions are from pockets of high-iron concentrate in silicate, more commonly known as Red Jasper

Formation:  There are two main types of sedimentary rocks.  Those formed by solid clasts such as clay, silt and sand and those formed by ions of native elements in solution, such as a sodium- or copper-rich silica.  Dragon’s Blood Jasper is formed in the latter way, by chromium-rich silica which hardens into a Fuchsitic Chert.  Australia is known as the Red Continent due to the high presence of iron in the soil.  When the green Fuchsitic Chert is formed in Australia, it sometimes includes small pockets and veins of iron-rich silica which transforms into Red Jasper.  This results in a mostly green stone, with red inclusions running through it.  

Mining: Dragon’s Blood Jasper was originally mined as a decorative stone within an iron ore mine.  It is currently also sourced from nearby mines which are focused specifically on decorative stones like Dragon’s Blood Jasper and Mookaite Jasper

Atlas Iron Mine, Pilbara Region, Western Australia

Enhancements: All Dragon’s Blood Jaspers are fully natural and have been enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

Synonyms: Dragon Stone, Dragonstone

History of Dragon’s Blood Jasper

Dragon’s Blood Jasper is a new stone for the metaphysical community. As a result, it is not included in early lapidaries, texts which describe stones and their powers.  Healing crystals with names that evoke magic or spirituality are trade/marketing names meant to drive up interest.  A scientific name, such as Fuchsitic Chert is more accurate, but perhaps lacks a certain poetry.  At Moonrise Crystals, marketing names are used only if specifically tied to a locality.  Fuchsitic Chert can be found in several locations, but Dragon’s Blood Jasper is found only in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. 

Dragon’s Blood Jasper is a sedimentary rock composed of Fuchsite and Red Jasper.  It is sometimes called Dragon Stone, usually with a space between the words “dragon” and “stone”.  Dragon’s Blood Jasper looks strikingly similar to an igneous rock composed of green Epidote and Red Piemontite found in the the Limpopo province of South Africa which is also nicknamed Dragonstone – usually with no space between the words.  To further complicate the matter, yet another sedimentary rock, a brown and yellow Septarian Nodule, is likewise marketed as Dragonstone!

The primary source for Dragon’s Blood Jasper markets this stone to the healing crystal industry as “Dragon Stone.”  The decision to use the longer name Dragon’s Blood Jasper is merely for clarity and organization on this site.  Both names are widely used.

Legend has it that Dragon’s Blood Jasper is the petrified remains of ancient dragons, the green being the dragon’s skin while the red is blood.  Whether this “local legend” was actually created by a healing crystal seller or by a non-financially motivated local is unknown.  But regardless of who said it first, it’s a charming story all the same.

Sourcing Relationship

I first encountered the US wholesaler at the 2015 Franklin, North Carolina Gem and Mineral Show.  They carry a wide-variety of tumbled stones, both common and rare.  The family is originally from Pakistan and was the first company to import K2, sky-blue Azurite from the famous mountain. When I first saw K2 I knew it was real, but didn’t know what it was and so approached one of the owners.  He and I had an instant rapport.

Years later, we greet with a hug and he expects me to have questions about all his new stock.  He tells me, with justifiable pride, about all the improvements he’s made to his business since we last spoke.  In 2019, this source began to label all their stones with country-of-origin.  When I asked him why, he told me that he listens to his customers and I keep asking him where all the stones come from.

    VERY FAST SHIPPING! Very nice palm stone. Great color. Thank you!

  2. Jennifer S. (Colorado)

    I’m so happy to receive the Dragon’s Blood Jasper! I’ve been aware of it’s existence for a while, but have not been sure how to properly source it due to its similarity to Dragonstone. It’s amazing that two stones with a very different makeup can look so similar. It’s wonderful yo have a seller whose sourcing can be trusted! Thank you!

  3. Monica N (Iowa)

    Just gave them to her and she cried! Thank you for making it special
