Maligano Jasper is the name given to a recently discovered brecciated Jasper variety that was found in Indonesia around 2011. The name comes from the small village it was found in on the island of Sulawesi (part of the four Greater Sunda Islands). It forms in ancient volcanic hot spring areas (how awesome!). It contains multiple different colors of Jasper (blue, red, orange, yellow, grey and beige) with veins of a greyish-silver Agate that has filled the cavities. The depot of which it is mined is largely inaccessibile, and there is a limited amount that is usually pulled out of the ground. This makes this crystal highly saught after and expensive.
If you are looking for a cabochon, expect to pay on the higher side, simply due to the rarity and cost of the raw material itself. Add that to the precision of a master craftsman and you have yourself a certainly valuable, but costly final product.
Maligano Jasper helps one surge through emotional and spiritual growth and allows on to be in a state of absoloute being, with a great amount of focus, paying attention to what is important and what is not. This process eliminates negative thought patterns and bad habits. Maligano Jasper transforms our spirit from within and provides an aura that reflects a “rebirth and renewed” effect. This pushes one to not only continue shedding layers of themselves, but also to begin questioning their surroundings and interactions daily. You will find that through this process, you will start to change the people that you hang around with. You will find that you will graviate to those who compliment these new found possitive energies. One will find a new found ability of dicernment for things that serve them and what has no potential to serve them.
As you continue working with Maligano Jasper and going through the powerful transformation it brings about, one will also begin to loosen their minor obsessions with invaluable things. This revelation may be emotionally taxing, but is for the betterment of your own spiritual evolution. This will soon allow one to realize first hand one of life’s most important lessons; happiness can only begin from within, and will only extend as far as you allow it to.
Maligano Jasper protects you against negativity and is also an excellent grounding crystal. It not only stabilizes the aura but also balances the physical, emotional, and intellectual bodies.
