In the Fourth Century, Jasper was known as the great "Rain-Bringer." It served as a reminder that an individual was not on the physical plane merely for himself or herself, but to also bring joy and substance to others and assist in releasing the bonds of constraint. Jasper was used by Native American shamans to provide protection during their journeys into the Spirit Worlds, being believed to protect against negativity and aid in grounding an individual to the stabilizing energy of the Earth. Red Jasper was once engraved with images of Lions or Archers and carried to guard against poison and to cure fever. Many carvings of Jasper have been found in Egyptian tombs and parts of the Book of the Dead were inscribed on tablets made from this stone. There are many references to Jasper in the Bible and it was one of the twelve sacred stones in the Breastplate of the High Priest. Saint Peter is believed by some cultures to have derived his name from the Jasper, since it was the rock on which Christ said, "I will build my Church." One of history's most exceptional Jaspers was etched with a profile of Louis XVI of France and displayed a blood-red steak across his throat. This symbolizm (King Louis eventually meeting his death by execution at the guillotine during the French Revolution) made it a gemstone of rare worth. Traditionally, the Jasper was employed in defensive magick because it was said to return negativity to the original sender. Brown Jasper: Helps one find stability and balance.

The word "Jet" originates from Gagas in Asia Minor where it was first discovered. A grounding and balancing stone said to carry a negative electrical charge, Jet was believed to be excellent in the drawing of power and in providing knowledge to the wearer. When combined with Amber, Jet was one of the traditional stones of the High Priestess who, in some cultures, was the only person allowed to wear both stones together. In ancient times, Jet was often burned and the fumes inhaled in order to alleviate various conditions, including edema, colds, female disorders and hysteria. Jet fumes were once also used to detect the loss of virginity...although the exact method of this practice has been lost over the passage of time. The consumption of water into which a piece of Jet had been dipped was believed at one time to cure the pangs of childbirth, and powdered Jet mixed with wax to form a salve was used for dental problems. A mixture of Jet in wine was formerly used to relieve toothache and also served as a fixative for loose teeth. Traditionally known to be a "one person" stone, Jet was thought to ward off evil (especially magickal evil), lift fear and cure depression. These stones were considered a link between the physical and the spiritual and employed to balance the emtions, as well as to repel plague, fever and negativity and offer protection from thunderstorms. In Ancient Greece, Jet was a sacred substance and in Assyria, it was considered to be the Gods' favored jewel. Widely used as a talisman or amulet, medieval legend credits these medallions with supernatural powers...the ability to gain complete control over the natural elements (fire, air, earth and water), for example. Given as a gift, the amulet could allegedly place a person under the power of the giver's mental control. In Ancient Britain and Ireland, Jet was considered an extremely lucky stone and housewives burned it to ensure the safe return of their sailor husbands. Jet was one of the first materials to be carved into crosses and made into rosaries during the early days of the Christian Church. In the Victorian Era, Jet beads became very fashionable as trimming for women's clothing and the stone itself worn as mourning jewelry. Wearers also carried the stone to ease arthritis of the knee and to prevent baldness. The use of Jet for amulets and ornaments was once world-wide and small figurines carved from Jet have been found in the tombs of Ancient Egypt, Japan and in the Pueblos of the American Indians. Jet in its natural form is found most abundantly in England, France, Germany and Spain and is used today chiefly in the manufacture of buttons and costume jewelry.
