Similar in appearance to scenic jasper, polychrome jasper boasts unique coloring including shades of brown, orange, red, green, and blue. In rare cases, picks and purples may also be found. Like other jaspers, the interesting colours and designs of the stones allow for unique patterns to be visible. It is even possible for “scenery” to be created through the careful carving of the stone to create the appearance of blue skies and tan hills or mountains. Polychrome jasper is a relatively now stone, discovered in 2006 while miners searched for a secondary source of ocean jasper.
Polychrome jasper is a happy energy stone. It is said to bring good fortune and a happy outlook on life. It is also used to assist in attuning to and communication with animals. In crystal healing is it used to ease stress and increase stamina, and the ability to adjust to change.
