Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone. Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. It guards against psychic attack, transmuting the energy into love and protecting the wearer from all types of harm, including geopathic or electromagnetic stress and ill wishes from others.

Next up are a few Imperial Jasper creations:
I’ve written before about Imperial Jasper specifically so today I’ll just mention the healing properties of Jaspers in general:
Jasper is generally known as a nurturing stone. It is considered a Power Stone and a Protection Stone. Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and be independent. Because it is a stone of the earth, it is a very “grounding” stone.
All Jaspers have excellent protective energies, but they do not give the “quick energy lift” that some other stones do. Although it is a power stone, it is also a gentle stone that brings peace, relaxation, tranquility, comfort, a sense of wholeness and healing. Jasper is used to psychically assist with astral travel. In crystal healing, jasper is used for the liver, gallbladder, stomach ailments and balancing male/female, yin/yang energies.
When you think of the phrase “Solid as a Rock” Jasper comes to mind. It is a stone that works slowly, providing constant, slow, deliberate energy, especially good in time of needed change without the chaos a total upheaval would cause. It is a good stone for working with shy or timid people who need change.
Because it is a nurturing stone this makes it a good stone for the healers to use on the behalf of others, such as in counseling or therapy, with addictions or compulsive behavior or when you or others need to gather up strength for the battles ahead. It can align all the chakras and balance yin yang energies and it is stabilizing and healing.
It provides protection from other people, forces and even from yourself! It can keep you from getting carried away, or lead astray, and being diverted from your goals. Jasper helps to give you courage in preparation for conflict, either physical or emotional.
