Found this at Earthbow.com:

Jasper
and its properties
Physical
properties of japer:
Jasper is a
member of the chalcedony family, part of the quartz
group. It is found in a wide variety of shades of red,
yellow, green, and brown. Mixtures of two or more colors
are also sometimes seen.
Jasper has
a hardness of 6 1/2 - 7 on the Mohs' scale, and a
specific gravity of 2.58 - 2.91.

Metaphysical properties of jasper: ... (see
Note on Properties)
Jasper's
energies are subtle, and work slowly over time. This
quality insures that you will not be over stimulated by
jasper. Because of this, it is suggested that jasper be
worn or carried for long periods of time. Many people
carry or wear jasper all the time.

All colors of jasper are said to unify and balance all
aspects of your life. Its subtle energies can help
restore a continuity of spirit and body that can improve
both work and play.
Jasper is said
to aid quickness of thought, allowing your mind to
function with less distractions and aiding clearness of
thought. It is also said to help dispel negative energies
and reduce stress. These qualities make jasper an
excellent choice for executives and others in the
business world.
The different colors
of jasper also are said to have specific qualities of
their own:
Brown Jasper is attuned
to the energies of the Earth. This quality can help you
find stability and balance. It is said to help your body
cleanse itself from the negative effects of environmental
pollutants and other toxins. This cleansing effect is
said to improve the skin and also stimulate the cleansing
organs such as the liver and kidneys.
Wearing this color jasper can also help you
become more in tune with the Earth. This quality can lead
to greater environmental awareness and help remind you to
strive to lower the amount of pollution you generate.
This quality of brown jasper makes it a good choice for
those wishing to quit smoking.
Brown
jasper is said to retain memories of the past, making it
an excellent choice for those wishing to relive past
events through regression or analysis. By reliving these
events, the negative energies associated with them can be
dispelled, allowing you to overcome them and move forward
with your life.
Green Jasper is said
to help balance the factors in your life. Its subtle
energies allow you to stop concentrating on one aspect of
life at the expense of the others. It can serve to remind
you that the whole is a result of all of the
parts.
Green jasper is especially
beneficial to the heart and upper torso, the digestive
tract, and the cleansing organs. Its energies work
slowly, over time to help restore harmony to these
areas.
Red Jasper is closely tied to
the blood and circulatory system. Its gentle energies are
said to aid in detoxifying the blood and liver. Its
subtle energies are stimulating, and an excellent aid to
overall health.
Red jasper is also
thought to increase awareness of problems, allowing you
to take action before these problem become a real
threat.
Yellow Jasper is said to be
helpful to the endocrine glands and the cleansing organs.
It can make you feel more energetic, stronger, and in
better physical condition. Yellow jasper is said to
amplify positive energies, and this can help your
thoughts assume a more positive light. Thoughts can and
do have a dramatic effect on your overall physical and
mental well being.

Jasper
and synergy:
Jasper, and especially
red jasper, is a good choice for those born during the
The Moon of Growth - (20 Apr - 20 May.) Those born during
the moon of growth often find themselves in situations of
rapid change, and jasper's grounding and balancing
abilities can help them cope with these influences.

Jasper can also help those born
during this period see all sides of an issue, often
helping them take the appropriate action before a minor
problem becomes a major one.
Jasper
is a good stone for those born under the zodiac sign of
Taurus.

Hi Wolfie, I like working with Jasper, as a matter
of fact one of my last creations was made from Picture
Jasper.
SED has shared some
wonderful information on Jasper and if I may, I would
like to add a little more ...
In
addition to the properties common to Jasper that SED has
shared, there are specific types of Jasper stones that
posses further qualities:
Arizona
Lizard Stone Jasper - Astrological Sign: Gemini

Vibrates to the number 8
Colors
range from light to dark green and this stone is used to
promote healing on all levels. Healers often use this
stone to assist in the release of causes of dis-ease.
It's also a great stone for the removal of energy
blockages.
Bat Cave Jasper -
Astrological Sign: Sagittarius
Vibrates to the
number 6
Bat Cave Jasper appears is
some magnificent colorings ranging from a deep chocolate
Brown to a lighter shade of brown/tan. It can be used to
facilitate a very deep state of meditation and to assist
one in the attainment of centering
"self." It is often used by those who
enjoy astral plane travel. It is said, Bat Cave Jasper
enhances night vision.
Bruneau
Jasper - Astrological Sign: Gemini
Vibrates to
the number 7
Bruneau Jasper occurs
in a variety of color combinations of browns and ivory.
The structure of this particular Jasper stone exhibits a
smooth flowing circular or oval pattern resembling an eye
or an infinite passageway to beyond reality. It's very
neat to spend time just gazing at the stone. It allows
one to "inter-connect" with all worlds
especially during astral travel. This is a great stone to
help enhance your expressiveness and to bring balance to
those erratic emotional states.

Picture Jasper - Astrological Sign: Leo

Vibrates to the number 7
I love this
stone and its wonderful color combinations. This is a
mystical looking stone that exhibits hidden messages
and/or pictures from the past. If you are seeking more
harmony in your life, this would be an excellent stone to
have.
Picture Jasper from the
vicinity of Biggs, Oregon is one of the most beautiful
picture jaspers providing scenes from he Earth and is
know as the stone for "Global
Awareness."
It emits an energy which promotes the spiritual
affinity to achieve a perfect accord between humanity and
nature.
There is also an unusual
form of "Biggs" Jasper known as
"Biggs Blue" that has an added property
which promotes understanding of the actual advanced
technology of ancient civilizations. I have never seen
this particular stone but it sounds
magnificent.
Picture Jasper helps
bring hidden thoughts, griefs, fears and hopes to the
surface so that one may face the cause of
disorders.
Red Jasper - Astrological
Sign: Taurus
Vibrates to the number 6
Another good stone for meditation, can help
rectify unpleasant situations and can facilitate the
reiteration of dreams to help the dreamer to
remember.
Rose-Eye Jasper -
Astrological Sign: Capricorn

number 8
This one is often used to
provide protection. It can be of further assistance in
all areas of dispersing.
Royal Plume
Jasper - Astrological Sign: :Leo &
Virgo

Fabulous stone to help stimulate the crown
chakra. Often used to stabilize emotions and treat
disorders associated with mental instability and loss of
memory.

Ritual Lore:
American Indians utilized jasper
in rain-attracting ceremonies, hence its name

to strengthen his digestive tract.

physical and nonphysical hazards. A piece of jasper held

childbirth. Perfectly carved arrowheads of jasper are
worn to attract luck to its wearer.

Each color has its own corresponding magicl nature and
uses:
Red: Projective, Mars, Fire.
Engraved with images of lions or archers and carried to
guard against poison and to cure fevers. A fine
protective stone, it is utilized in defensive magic, for

mental states.

drowning. It is said to be especially potent for this
purpose when carved with the image of an equal-armed
cross, representing the powers of the four elements, of
