Science of Leopardskin Jasper
Leopardskin Jasper is part of the Orbicular Jasper family. These are Jasper with spots or “orbs” in them. Other examples are Ocean/Sea Jasper, Asteroid Jasper, and Poppy Jasper. This type of Jasper can be found in abundance in Chihuahua, Mexico, but is also mined in Brazil and Africa as well. The stone will look different depending on which mine it comes from. It looks very much like Poppy Jasper, but has much more muted color shades, rather than Poppy Jasper’s bright reds and pinks.

Leopardskin Jasper spiritual properties aid us with the balance of light and dark in our lives. We should acknowledge and understand all aspects of our being. This stone helps us to explore our Shadow Self without getting lost in the emotions connected with some of the Shadow qualities. It’s grounding and uplifting at the same time. It is not afraid of exploring the dark, because it is connected to the light of your Heart. It also helps us realize that the “dark” part of ourselves can be a compliment to our light side rather than an aspect to be shamed or eliminated. For example, it is important to be kind, compassionate and polite to others. However, it is appropriate to allow a more forceful nature to enforce our personal boundaries and prevent someone else from taking advantage of you or others.

Leopardskin Jasper Mantra Practice
Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Leopardskin Jasper in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a red and pinks energy swirling about you providing energy and cleansing any old attachments. Repeat this mantra, “I am Confident. I am Awake. I am ready to Acknowledge and Embrace all aspects of myself and Release what I no longer Need.”
