History & Overview
If you’re looking for a stone that is all about balance, connection to nature, protection and spiritual healing, then Green Jasper is one you’ll want to have in your collection.
Geologically, Green Jasper is actually a type of Cryptocrystalline Quartz that is infused with iron silicate. It’s this iron silicate that gives Green Jasper its lovely, earthy green color.
Throughout history, Green Jasper has been cherished for its stunning beauty, its calming meaning, and its ability to bring people closer to the earth and all its abundance. Green Jasper was also thought to have incredible powers of protection from poisons, evil spirits, bad dreams and negative thoughts.
The early Germanic people would use Green Jasper on venomous snake bites to neutralize the poison, and this stone was also used to ease childbirth, heal fevers and protect people from drowning.
Also called “The Rain Bringer”, Green Jasper was used as a talisman for rain by both the ancient Greeks and early Native Americans.
These days, Green Jasper is still utilized as an important physical, emotional and spiritual healing tool due to the healing properties it possesses.
Green Jasper Meaning
Green Jasper is considered by many to be the most balanced type of Jasper. With shades of green that range from light green to the deepest olive, Green Jasper is thought to have the ability to connect the user to the earth, water and nature.
The primary Green Jasper meaning has a very balancing and calming effect that has led to its “Peace Love Crystal” nickname. Due to its ability to promote internal harmony and positivity, it’s a good stone to use for psychological and spiritual imbalances (more on that later).

We recommend Green Jasper for anyone who needs a stone that is good for all around emotional healing. As a crystal for anxieties and stresses to more complex and serious emotional and mental health issues, Green Jasper is a potent tool for restoring and maintaining emotional health.
Green Jasper is a powerful tool for healing strong emotional problems such as a lack of impulse control, paranoid delusions and obsessive behavior and thoughts. It is also used by practitioners to help their patients with sleep issues like insomnia and nightmares. If you have a child who is plagued by recurrent bad dreams, then placing Green Jasper under their pillow or on a nightstand may have the power to drive away those dreams before they even happen.
When taken as an elixir, Green Jasper is often used to help with sexual energy problems that stem from a history of sexual abuse or trauma. Through this healing, the user may be able to find a path to healthy sexuality.
If you want a stone that operates and heals on a higher, more spiritual level, then you’ll want to have Green Jasper in your collection of healing crystals.
A lot of spiritual work can be done if you spend time tuning in to the ancient rhythms and wisdom of the earth. When you are open to the lessons that can be learned from earth and nature, then you can take advantage of the deep and lasting healing that comes from it. The meaning of Green Jasper has a very close connection to earth, so using this stone during meditation or other practices may bring you all the benefits of this deep, primordial knowledge.
Green Jasper has the ability to drive away a range of negative energies such as evil spirits and ghosts, as well as harmful spells and intentions associated with negative or self-destructive thoughts. This stone can be especially potent when worn as a talisman.
Even though Green Jasper is strongly connected to the earth, it’s also thought to be a powerful link to guardian angels and other beings in the spiritual realm. Many people use this stone during meditation to help them hear and interpret messages and signs from angelic beings.
In addition to being beneficial for the mind and spirit, Green Jasper can also be a very dynamic healer for issues relating to the body.
Practitioners often turn to Green Jasper for patients with various types of inflammatory ailments. If you suffer from skin issues, gout, kidney, spleen or liver problems, then making Green Jasper a part of your treatment may bring surprising results. This stone can also be used to treat heavy nosebleeds.
The healing properties of Green Jasper are also known to be a potent detoxifier and immune system booster, and if you are recovering from any kind of long-term illness, then this stone may give you the ability to get back on your feet faster.
Since olden times, Green Jasper has been used for a wide range of women’s health issues such as a heavy menstrual flow, hemorrhoids during and after pregnancy and excessive bleeding during childbirth. In the Middle Ages, it was placed near a woman in labor to prevent hemorrhaging.
Green Jasper is often placed (by an experienced practitioner) for a soak in demineralized water. This makes a Green Jasper elixir that is thought to be highly effective for a variety of ailments.
As stated above, the meaning of Green Jasper is all about balance. When the mind, body and spirit are out of harmony with each other, then the effects of this imbalance can be widespread and devastating.
The primary chakra associated with Green Jasper is the heart chakra. When this chakra is blocked or out of alignment, you may feel that your emotions are out of control, and you may be inwardly or outwardly critical of others. Impulsive behavior or responses that are out of proportion to situations are also symptoms of a heart chakra that is not in harmony. Wearing Green Jasper near your heart or using it during meditation can help bring this chakra back to health and balance.
Green Jasper is also strongly connected to the earth, so using it as a root chakra stone is also recommended. This will help you to achieve the grounding and interconnection to the earth that will help you control your more flighty and irrational impulses.

Tips For Cleansing It
Green Jasper, like all stones, needs to be cleansed on a regular basis. Since Green Jasper has the ability to soak up negative energies, we suggest cleansing it once every week or two.
It’s very important to cleanse and charge your Green Jasper before you use it for the first time. This process does not take a long time, and it will help you build a personal bond with your stone.
The steps are going to be the same whether you are cleansing your stone for the first time, or if you have already had your Green Jasper for a while. Let’s take a quick look at how to properly cleanse and charge your Green Jasper.
Unlike some stones, Green Jasper does not require any type of deep cleaning. In fact, a little soapy water and a rub with a sponge or soft brush should be fine. A rinse in lukewarm water and a rub with a dry cloth can work as well.
Green Jasper can’t tolerate high heat, so wash it in warm water only. We also recommend removing any Green Jasper jewelry before exercising or doing anything strenuous.
Lastly, don’t forget to charge your crystal. This can be done in several ways. Since Green Jasper is connected to the earth, you can put it in your garden under the soil overnight. This will give this down-to-earth stone a chance to joyfully connect back to its source. It can also be charged during meditation of Reiki practice.
Unlike many healing crystals, Green Jasper is not associated with one particular zodiac sign, but it does have some extra resonance with the signs of Cancer, Aries, Scorpio and Pisces. Of course, this stone can be used by anyone, but it seems to have more potency with these signs.
The properties of Green Jasper are connected to the earth and to the beauty and renewal of springtime. People who were born under the spring sign of Aries can benefit from using Green Jasper in their practices. This stone may help an Aries bring balance between their positive and negative energies, and it may help an Aries curb impulsive behavior. Other spring signs, such as Taurus and Gemini may also benefit from using Green Jasper.
Pisces, a water sign, can also make good use of the healing powers of Green Jasper. This stone is sometimes associated with water, and a Pisces may be able to find the internal balance they need.
Although not spring zodiac signs, Scorpio and Cancer will find healing through the addition of Green Jasper into their spiritual practice.
The main Green Jasper meaning of balance and calm is something that many people can benefit from. Because of this, it’s not surprising that this stone has been used for thousands of years!
