Healing Properties of Leopardskin Jasper

Spiritual: Leopardskin Jasper is a dynamic healing crystal that can help us achieve our most lofty goals. It has a strong and warm grounding energy that helps us to feel safe and competent.  Leopardskin Jasper is remarkably versatile, helping us to be comfortable pursuing numerous paths, both spiritual and secular, without feeling out-of-balance or in conflict.  Leopardskin Jasper reminds us that we are highly capable and to trust ourselves to make good choices and correct ourselves as needed.  It roars with approval every time we dare to stand up for ourselves and others.  It loudly demands that we work, not just wish, to make the world a kinder and more just place.  Leopardskin Jasper is attuned to the Root, Sacral, and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Capricorn and Leo. It is connected to the element Earth and vibrates to the number 6.

Emotional: Leopardskin Jasper ignites a bright and powerful courage in our lives.  It first and foremost, helps us to take responsibility for ourselves and our actions.  It also helps us to take better care of our own; whether that means our family, our community or even the whole wide world.  Leopardskin Jasper gives us great heart, so we can love freely, deeply and widely.  Like all Jaspers, Leopardskin Jasper has a strong nurturing energy.  In the case of Leopardskin Jasper specifically, this nurturing resembles a mama cat protecting her young from harm and giving them the lessons they need to become powerful and successful adults.  Leopardskin Jasper has a highly protective energy field, which provides a subtle “don’t mess with me” vibration that helps keep negative people at a distance.  Leopardskin Jasper increases our self-confidence, while reducing any urge to sulk, brag, or act poorly.  It encourages us to feel like and act like our best selves.

Mental: Leopardskin Jasper encourages us to be ruthless honest with ourselves and to banishes illusions and delusions.  Rather than wishing life was different or trying to rewrite past events to show ourselves in a better light, Leopardskin Jasper gives us the courage to accept what truly is.  Leopardskin Jasper helps us to be mentally brave; willing to look at the “hard stuff”, accept responsibility when appropriate and make tough decisions. It reminds us that we don’t have to enjoy reality, but we do need to acknowledge it.  When we are honest about the past and our current situation, we can then make different choices and create a new future reality that is more to our satisfaction.  Leopardskin Jasper sparks creative problem-solving and ingenuity.

Physical: Leopardskin Jasper is recommended for increasing physical prowess and confidence.  Leopardskin Jasper helps us to reach our apex power so we can run faster, jump higher, hit harder, and be agile in any environment.  It encourages us to train our body well, for strength and mobility, so we can be ready for any challenge.  Leopardskin Jasper pushes us to commit to daily physical movement and to get rid of bad habits like smoking and junk food.  In the bedroom, Leopardskin Jasper helps us to have confidence in our sexual performance and to have more fun.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Rock Family: Leopardskin Jasper is not a mineral, but rather a rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock!

Formation: Despite its name, Leopardskin Jasper is not actually a type of Jasper. It is a form of Rhyolite, a type of igneous rock. Rhyolite is a type of extrusive igneous rock, formed on the surface of the earth by molten magma due to a volcanic eruption. There are five types of igneous rocks created by lava: Basalt, Obsidian, Rhyolite, Trachyte, and Andesite. Other types of igneous rocks, such as Granite, are created by processes deep within the earth. Rhyolite is a relatively rare volcanic rock, almost exclusively found in the interiors of continents. Most Rhyolites are porphyritic and contain large Quartz crystals or other varieties of crystals in an extremely fine-grained matrix. This indicates that these crystals were already being formed before the lava flowed onto the surface. Leopardskin Jasper is a popular name given to pink spotted Rhyolite.

Mining: Mined at its primary deposit, usually found with Obsidian and Pumice.

Enhancements: All varieties of  Rhyolite, including Leopardskin Jasper, Ocean Jasper, and Rainforest Jasper are fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.

Other Names: Jaguar Stone, Pink Rhyolite

leopardHistory of Leopardskin Jasper

The name “Jasper” is a generic name given to any spotted stone as well as most semi-transparent or opaque Chalcedony. As a result, it can be difficult to know exactly which stone is being referenced in ancient and medieval writings. Leopardskin Jasper is a type of pink Rhyolite whose specific healing energies have only recently been explored.

The name “Leopardskin Jasper” or “Jaguar Stone” is, of course, due to the spots which decorate this pretty Jasper.

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since 2014.  They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons.  Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it.  The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.  Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.
