Margaret Ann’s Leopard Skin Jasper asks “Are people around you suddenly changing their tune? Have you decided it is time to change yours? Do you need to be more flexible, like a leopard?
Stalk yourself; mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Observe yourself and those around you.”
Robert Simmons speaks of a different Jasper – the Rainforest Jasper and tells us that it “Awakens the awareness that we as creatures are not separated from the world of animals and plants – or minerals, for that matter. ”
And then he speaks of another Jasper – Fancy Jasper – “This performs the task of helping one attend to the mundane details of life with efficiency and good humour. It grounds one firmly in the body and focuses the mental energies on dealing with whatever issues and duties are most significant at the time ”
