Zebra Jasper, is also known as Zebra Rock, Zebra Marble, and Zebra Stone. The stone's dark and light stripes resemble the pattern of the Zebra's hide; hence its name. The Zebra Jasper not only reminds one of the Zebra's hide it also vibrates the energies of the Zebra totem – "Zebra by name Zebra by nature". The Zebra totem animal teaches one how to balance the polarities in order to find the golden mean. Crystal healers call this crystal the Yin/Yang stone. In Chinese philosophy the Yin/Yang energy represents the duality of opposites that complement each other, like male and female, external and internal, dark and light. Yin/Yang is essentially one whole that comprises two opposites. By balancing the Yin/Yang polarities we learn to share and cooperate with those who are different from ourselves. This balancing is the basis for maintaining a successful marriage where husband (male) and wife (female) live together in harmony.
This is a stone of compassion and understanding. It also helps to counteract prejudices and misunderstandings based on erroneous preconceptions. The Zebra Jasper is the perfect crystal ally for people who tend to draw wrong conclusions based on assumptions instead of facts. The lesson taught by this stone is "Check the facts carefully before you jump to conclusions". If someone you care about tends to be rash in drawing conclusions and generally has a superficial view of the world, you can give them a piece of Zebra Jasper as a personal talisman for gaining a wider perspective on life and a deeper understanding of things.
The Zebra Jasper is the lucky stone for athletes and laborers who do hard physical work. The stone's vibration helps to increase one's energy levels as well as stimulate one's motivation and endurance capacity.
If your birthstone is the Zebra Jasper then you are a very sociable person who knows how to enjoy life to the fullest and loves having fun with friends. You value your friendships greatly and like to spend your free time and holidays experiencing new things with your friends. People who know you will describe you as a happy-go-lucky sort of person with whom it's fun to be with.
Zebra Jasper's grounding energies help people who feel perplexed and overwhelmed by the challenges life has brought them. If you are at a stage in life where you are too confused to decide what direction to take, place a piece of Zebra Jasper under your pillow before going to sleep and utter a short prayer asking for Divine inspiration. The next morning you will wake up with fresh mental and intuitive energies to make the necessary decisions for the future.
