Ancient people regarded the stone Red Jasper, as a sacred stone of physical and spiritual protection—a natural healing stone that amounts to courage and wisdom. Therefore, Red Jasper was once a talisman of warriors and carried as a source of protection.

In ancient Egypt, Red Jasper was linked to fertility, as it was named the fertilizing blood of Mother Isis.

It was sometimes placed around the neck of the deceased in the form of an amulet carved with a scene of the 156th Chapter from the Book of the Dead. Similarly some North American Indians referred to Red Jasper as the “blood of Mother Earth” that stimulated health and rebirth.

In the Viking or Germanic legends of Siegfried “the dragonslayer”, Red Jasper was inlaid in the hilt of the hero’s magical sword to guide him with courage in his trials of adversity.
