The History of Dalmatian Jasper
Dalmatian Jasper, better known as Dalmatian Stone, is typically found and mined in Chihuahua, Mexico.
According to legend, the Ancient Egyptians wore Jasper scarabs as amulets, as the crystal was believed to increase sexual potency. And according to the Bible, Jasper was a gift to humankind from God and was intended to be the first foundation stone of the New Jerusalem.
Both the indigenous peoples of North America and Asia are said to have credited the power of rain making to this uniquely marked stone.
Recognising Dalmatian Jasper
This distinctive stone is named for its likeness to any one of 101 spotty doggos (I know, shocking right?).
It is a mix of Feldspar and Quartz with spots of brown and black or even an orangey colour, which is related to the presence of iron oxide in some stones. The spots within the Dalmatian Jasper are usually Black Tourmaline, enabling Dalmatian Jasper to carry the Tourmaline’s grounding, protective energies, giving this stone a unique combination of the innocence of youth coupled with the wisdom and spiritual grounding of an ancient yogi.
Dalmatian Jasper has a hardness of 5-7.5 on the Mohs scale.
What is Dalmatian Jasper used for?
Cute as a puppy Dalmatian Jasper has a powerfully lovely energy that reminds you that you can enjoy life, that it’s OK to have fun (which I think we can all agree is something the world needs rn). It can reduce that dreaded sense of discouragement that comes from years of pessimism, endless lockdowns and the 24-hour news cycle, and help you to release the things you have outgrown, while simultaneously embracing that which brings you joy.
This is a stone that just exudes positive energy, as the spots of Tourmaline will suck up any negativity or disharmony in your surroundings like a super absorbent Chux, and spit them back out as clean, positive vibes, bringing a sense of light-heartedness and even giddiness to all it touches. This childlike joy and wonder automatically bring an improvement to the bearer’s emotional state.
Dalmatian Jasper will inspire faith and devotion towards others, especially those that you have close intimate relationships with. It can help improve these relationships, by helping you to release negativity and worry and boost loving energy towards others. If you’ve been feeling that recent events have made you feel a little out of balance and negative feelings have been disrupting your relationships, keep a little Dalmatian Jasper under your pillow to help restore the balance (bonus: its strong calming vibrations also help keep nightmares at bay!).
