Red Jasper is very grounding and energising and a great awakener of all creative energies that are grounded within the lower 2 chakras. It can be useful to awaken and regulate a sluggish base or sacral chakra, and may also be used with any energy centres that require warming, integrating or strengthening. Its high iron content also supports the blood and circulatory system and the repair and regeneration of muscle tissue. Sometimes the Jasper is found with a higher than usual amount of quartz, sometimes layered with banded chalcedonies or breciated in some fashion. In these cases the quartz amplifies and increases the effects of the jasper and adds an extra dimension to their use.
