What is Ribbon Jasper?
You’ll often hear jasper referred to as picture jasper or ribbon jasper due to its unique appearance. You might also see it referred to as curly jasper or rainbow jasper depending on how many colours you can make out in a single rock. It isn't always easy to see all of these features in one stone, but if you're lucky enough you'll discover just that: beautiful multi-coloured bands and curves that are picture-perfect. Discovering Ribbon Jasper is like finding a mini-museum in your backyard. It is perhaps one of the natures most intricate creations and while not every bit is visible at first glance, it will slowly reveal itself over time.
History of Ribbon Jaspers
When identifying ribbon jasper, it’s best to look for swirls of colour that alternate in direction. If a rock has stripes, rather than swirls, it’s more likely to be mica. True ribbon jasper will typically have dark orange or brown colours and may feature bands of colour that run parallel to one another. The stone is usually cut with a gentle curve, making it appear as if someone took a flat piece of stone and wrapped it around something cylindrical like an egg. A cut piece of ribbon jasper will sometimes appear as if it were made up of separate strips attached end-to-end. For thousands of years, humans have used jasper in jewellery making.
Ribbon jasper’s healing properties
There is nothing in particular that sets ribbon jasper apart from other varieties of jasper. However, it has been shown to work well with Reiki, which is a type of alternative medicine technique for stress and pain relief that uses universal life energy, or chi. It can be used for energizing and balancing one’s physical, mental and emotional energies. It may also help ground one’s energies with Mother Earth. People who are at risk for getting anxiety or depression from excess mental activity might find it especially helpful to use ribbon jasper regularly to keep those emotions under control.
How to identify true ribbon jasper
From afar, ribbon jasper has a similar appearance to other jaspers. Ribbon jasper can look like black silk ribbons floating in a clear base. On close inspection, you’ll see that ribbon jasper is made up of elongated strands with mostly even widths and consistent thicknesses. The visible grains are also defined, giving them a very three-dimensional quality. You may also notice some colour gradation within each strand and bands of grey or cream running through it; these varieties do exist but aren’t always present and are not common enough to be considered field indicators when determining whether or not something is ribbon jasper.
