Fancy Jasper aka India Agate :
This gemstone is an opaque creamy beige or gray stone with lavender, green, pink, orange or red swirls and specks. It is said to facilitate tranquility and help eliminate worry and depression. It also might bring mental clarity. Fancy Jasper varies in color from forest green to burgundy and gold. It is useful for general healing.
Jasper, in general, is known as a nurturing stone. It ranges in color from Reds, Yellows, Greens, Browns and Oranges. There are several different varieties of Jasper.
It is considered a Power Stone and a Protection Stone. Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and be independent. Because it is a stone of the earth, it is a very "grounding" stone.
All Jaspers have excellent protective energies, but they do not give the "quick energy lift" that some other stones do. Although it is a power stone, it is also a gentle stone that brings peace, relaxation, tranquility, comfort, a sense of wholeness and healing. Jasper is used to psychically assist with astral travel. In crystal healing, jasper is used for the liver, gallbladder, stomach ailments and balancing male/female, yin/yang energies.
When you think of the phrase "Solid as a Rock" Jasper comes to mind. It is a stone that works slowly, providing constant, slow, deliberate energy, especially good in time of needed change without the chaos a total upheaval would cause. It is a good stone for working with shy or timid people who need change.
Because it is a nurturing stone this makes it a good stone for the healers to use on the behalf of others, such as in counseling or therapy, with addictions or compulsive behavior or when you or others need to gather up strength for the battles ahead. It can align all the chakras and balance yin yang energies and it is stabilizing and healing.
It provides protection from other people, forces and even from yourself! It can keep you from getting carried away, or lead astray, and being diverted from your goals. Jasper helps to give you courage in preparation for conflict, either physical or emotional.
