Jasper is a stone of tenderness. It brings increased ability of relaxation, peace, comfort, integrity, and healing. It has also been regarded as a stone of caring and nurturing because of its marked protective energies. People have been using it for facilitating astral travel.

Jasper brings mental balance and clarity. It empowers us to receive energy and strength, but in a similar way, it also encourages beauty and grace. Known as a lucky and protective stone, Jasper will protect the owner against dangerous and intense longings. It energetically aligns all energy centers. Jasper, however, offers no instant solutions — it should be used for a longer period of time, as it works slowly, but methodically.

Jasper comes in many colors, from brick-red to brown-red, green, blue, yellow, and black. Notable occurrences are in India, South Africa, Egypt, Brazil, Russia, and Australia.

This mineral, which can be polished to a high luster, is often used in ornaments and jewelry production. Jasper, whose Hebrew name is yashepheh, is one of the breastplate (Hoshen) stones of the high priests mentioned in the Bible (Book of Exodus, 28:20). Even though the most common form of Jasper is the red Jasper, here, the word, yashepheh, most likely refers to the green, the rarer and more costly form of this stone. According to some interpretations, Jasper was the stone of the Benjamin tribe of Israel. The book of Revelations, chapter 21:11, says, “It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal”.

jasper kambaba

Kambaba Jasper, also called Kabamba Jasper or Crocodile Jasper, calms the nervous system and stabilizes the mental body. It is a grounding and protective mystical stone that will guard the owner against every type of evil influences, visible or invisible. This stone can regenerate the body on the deepest level and cleanse it from the accumulated toxins.

Kambaba Jasper is a beautiful green stone featuring a whole spectrum of shades, from forest-green to mint-green, brown, and black. It can be polished to a high luster. This Jasper variation shows concentric circles and spots that look curiously like human eyes, so that each stone gives the impression of a unique human face with wide open eyes.

Notable occurrences are in Southern Africa (Madagascar). Rediscovered a couple of years ago and named Amphibianite because of its similarity with the amphibian skin, this stone has provoked renewed interest of the mineral lovers and collectors. It has also appealed to the esoteric community because of its mystical forces and metaphysical properties.

Kambaba Jasper is, in essence, a rare fossilized Jasper, also referred to as Stromatolite Jasper. The geological period when this stone first appeared on the face of the earth dates back to some 3 billion years ago.

Stromatolites are a pretty peculiar group of fossils. All stromatolite structures are formed by cyanobacteria (also known as blue-green algae), and they are some of the oldest structures on Earth. At the time, the stromatolites were the dominant form of life on the planet, partly responsible for the creation of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere.

Apart from Kambaba Jasper, the mines of Madagascar are abundant in other minerals and precious stones. There are over 2,300 mines, employing more than 100,000 workers. There is a broad range of gems, including Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Beryl, attractive Quartz specimens, Marble, Fluorite, and Dolomite. Madagascar is the source of the finest Morganite in the world, also known as “Angel Crystal”, as well as Aquamarine, Garnet, Amethyst, Citrine, Chrysoberyl, and Tourmaline of very high quality.

Because of its inherent mystical features, Kambaba Jasper is an exotic variety of Jasper. It attracts and stores the energies immanent in the place of origin. The island of Madagascar contains the remnants of a mysterious temple which serves as a portal to the ethereal structure of the Great Temple of Harmony.

The hierarch of this temple is El Morya, one of the ascended masters of wisdom. Clairvoyant people can see an impressive sphere, a huge Sun with a golden core, and seven flaming hands. These hands symbolically represent the Seven Rays of Light. Each hand has the color and corresponds to one of the Seven Rays. In the center, the qualities of the Seven Rays blend together into one mighty pulsation.

This temple belongs to the White Ray. It blends the radiation and shine of all seven rays. The pulsation of this temple is accompanied by a peaceful Divine music, which can only faintly be compared to the tranquil “Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy. This temple is one of world’s most sacred places of power, one of the etheric Temples of Shambala. The White Ray enhances purity and provides knowledge about the primordial, undefiled image of creation.

Kambaba Jasper is a stone that should be loved and respected. Just by rubbing the stone’s surface, we can receive the blessings of this sacred place.

Kambaba Jasper is a suitable stone for inducing meditative states of the mind. Before meditation, we should concentrate first on this stone for at least ten minutes, especially focusing our attention on its eye-like features.

In healing, this Jasper type boosts the metabolism. It provides a feeling of peace, security, and pleasantness while healing and recuperating after long term illnesses. By regulating the metabolism and by improving the assimilation of vitamins and minerals, Kambaba Jasper helps remove the various types of accumulated toxins in the body.

Kambaba Jasper calms the nerves and enables your connection with the energies of the earth. This way, you can rediscover your personal roots, as well as the magic power necessary to become whole and unique again.

Kambaba Jasper stands before you like a reminder that you, as human being, are not here for yourself only, but to bring joy and help to everyone else, so that we all can tear down the shackles and limitations of our lower human nature together.

This stone should be rinsed with lukewarm water. It should be charged with a previously charged Rock crystal. When purchasing Kambaba Jasper, one should be careful not to mix it up with Nebula StoneTM.
