Jasper is an opaque rock of virtually any color stemming from the mineral content of the original sediments or ash. Patterns arise during the consolidation process forming flow and depositional patterns in the original silica rich sediment or volcanic ash. Hydrothermal circulation is generally thought to be required in the formation of jasper.
Jasper can be modified by the diffusion of minerals along discontinuities providing the appearance of vegetative growth, i.e., dendritic. The original materials are often fractured and/or distorted, after deposition, into myriad beautiful patterns which are to be later filled with other colorful minerals. Weathering, with time, will create intensely colored superficial rinds.

There has been a lot of debate about this stone as to whether it is true Jasper as it contains a mix of other minerals as well as some Jasper. Kiwi/Sesame Jasper becomes warm when held, with a sense of healing, and the feet become warm too, also felt peaceful and relaxed.
Kiwi/Sesame Jasper is a pale seafoam green color with black & clear crystal spotting effect throughout the stones. It’s a nurturing stone, a good stone for the healers to use on the behalf of others. A good stone for people in counseling or therapy, who want to overcome addictions or compulsive behavior, & gather up their strength for the battles ahead
Despite its natural color, this is not a soft pillowy kind of energy, but rather incredibly vibrant and stimulating. It raises ones spirit and elevates the mood. This “euphoria” is not the kind that you lose your thought process, but it more attunes you to the natural pulse of love, which of course brings about the shift in attitude, mood and mind. Which in turn helps in balancing the art of giving and receiving. Often we are drawn to one or the other, and have trouble balancing…this Opal will help one to see that both side (like ying & yang) are necessary and both are needed for wholeness.
