The stone of recovery from trauma – of pulling yourself back together – of finding substance in shattered pieces. Ibis Jasper reminds us that we can still be whole no matter what happens to us. This vibrant, lively, powerful stone is so complex and so unique – I’m so excited to bring this brand new find to the Crystal Lion shop!
Ibis Jasper is a BRAND NEW find out of Madagascar. My suppliers are some of the first to get it in the world, and the location of the mine is top secret. As such, there’s not much out there, and it’s not easy to find. Most of what you will find has been marked up in price considerably. I WON’T DO THIS IN THE SHOP. It’s true, we don’t know how much Ibis Jasper will come out of the mines – it may be a lot and come out for years, or, this may be it. We simply don’t know. But as with all the other pieces in my shop, if it calls to you, I want you to have it! Those who purchase this stone will be some of the first people in the world to work with it!
ABOUT IBIS JASPER
“Ibis Jasper” is so named because the layers of stone often resemble the feathers of the Madagascan Ibis bird, which is more red and brown than its Egyptian counterpart. The Ibis is associated with the Egyptian Diety Thoth, the God of wisdom. It’s believed that the Ibis stone assists us in tapping into ancient wisdom and knowledge, whether universal or within ourselves.
Ibis Jasper is very similar to Polychrome Jasper – in fact, it’s a version of Polychrome/Desert Jasper, so it shares some of the same physical and metaphysical properties. This gorgeous stone is actually a form of opaque chalcedony, and its color comes from a variety of different minerals present where it forms.
How does Ibis Jasper contain so many different minerals within it?
Ibis is considered a Brecciated Jasper: “breccia” is from Italian for “fragments” or “pieces” and it is applied to Ibis Jasper because brecciated stones have broken apart (usually by water, or natural weather patterns) and have been later cemented back together by other minerals, usually quartz. This is why you see veins or layers within Ibis Jasper, often alternating with clear quartz layers. Having been broken apart and healed back together, brecciated Ibis Jasper is said to be very valuable for those who have experienced a shakeup, a traumatic event or injury, and are helpful in “pulling it together” after such an event and for recovery in general. Ibis Jasper also helps us interpret dreams, psychic or Tarot readings, and understand intuitive messages.
You will receive TWO (2) Ibis Jasper crystal hearts from the lot pictured. Each measure approximately 1.25 inches across the widest part and are intuitively chosen. Please remember these are estimate lengths!
*PLEASE NOTE: as this is an intuitively chosen listing, your hearts will vary in shape and pattern. Individual photographs are not available of group listings…however, if you have a color choice/pattern preference, you may put it in the “notes to seller” box at checkout. Please note that being able to offer your first choices will depend on the available inventory at the time of your ordering!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
