Wood Jasper and Smoky Quartz Necklace
Description: Jasper includes a huge family of stones that vary greatly in color and pattern. It is a solid looking stone that often presents us with tiny landscapes or other interesting pictures created by different layers of sand and minerals. Wood or wooden jasper is a type of picture jasper and has been found in Africa (specifically in Tanzania), as well as Australia and Wyoming in the USA. Because of the patterns that resemble the graining found in wood, the name is especially appropriate. One look and you can practically feel the sand blowing across the layers of rock. We have accented the stone with faceted smoky quartz, which plays to the first or root chakra. This stone is a nice combination of grounded confidence.
Core Chakra Information for Wood Jasper and Smoky Quartz Necklace
The third chakra is also called the core chakra. It is located in the center of the body known as the solar plexis. Within this chakra, we hold feelings of confidence, determination, discipline and prana, a term meaning “breath of life”. The core chakra is the center of our personal power.
People who are comfortable in their third chakra can be tremendously successful, simply because self confidence is a magnet for others. (Think of the uber self confident character Arthur Fonzerelli, aka The Fonz).
Imbalances in this area can range from lack of confidence to powerless victim. Common terms for this imbalance might be: Flip flops in your stomach, a stomach that is all tied up in knots or having butterflies in your stomach. An imbalance at the other end of the core chakra spectrum would be someone who abuses their power in which case we might say they were power hungry or full of themselves. Taking a deep breath that fills not just your lungs, but the entire area of the solar plexis will change your posture, and is often helpful to calm yourself down and feel empowered. Surrounding yourself in the color yellow is a great way to recharge your inner sun.
