Jasper, Yellow – (Solar Plexus Chakra) – (Zodiac of Leo)
This is a stone I would collect on the shores of the Oregon cost as I was a kid, so it is very familiar and nurturing to me as an adult. Most crystal healing research focuses on Red Jasper, or the many multi-colored varieties, but I want to give Yellow Jasper is due respect because it is a wonderfully energetic and beautiful stone.
