Hello crystal lovers today’s topic, African Turquoise Jasper, was originally posted back on March 9, 2018. Back when I was researching I had difficulty finding any real concrete information about where it was found. Sure I found some awesome characteristics, but just little enough background to make me question whether it’s a real thing. I find it interesting that four years later I am in the same situation where I can find very little source information about something which is called a recent find. In the case of today’s topic this is the case.
What I was able to find from several sources is that it is found and mined all over Africa, hence the name, but that is a pretty big parcel of land!! I love researching but it annoys me to no end when I can’t find what I’m looking for. So I kept looking, yeah being a double Taurus makes me a bit stubborn :D. After a while I found a sight that mentioned the ancient Egyptians having a particular love and reverence for the stone and mined it from the Sinai Peninsula. That is a huge area of land as well but for now I’ll take that.
The interesting thing about this stone is that it isn’t turquoise. It’s called versions of African Turquoise Jasper but the use of the word Turquoise is about its turquoise like color. This is actually a Jasper that will help transform your life and open you up to new possibilities. Working with it will help bring you to the place where there is no more denying it, you are face to face with those areas of life that need to be changed. Once this fact is accepted it will give you the discipline to make them.
African Turquoise Jasper resonates with the Third Eye and Heart Chakras which also helps you open to the possibilities of new things. On the Mohs scale of hardness is between 6.5 and 7. Here are a few more qualities this stone has to offer.
- It encourages growth
- It increases confidence
- Helps you get into the flow for change
- It eases depression
- Meditation with it can clear blockages to open the flow of the life force
- It eases joint pain
- Helps heart function
- Improves kidney function
I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at African Turquoise Jasper. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing healing qualities of this stone or any crystal or mineral is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can help but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.
Until Next Time…
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
