Bamboo Leaf Jasper (or Bamboo Jasper) is a conglomerate of sandstone structures in a silica matrix. A light yellow, light brown, dark brown and tan mix of colors, with surface inclusions and fissures that refract, transmit and reflect light in thousands of directions.

Because of the random structure of bamboo jasper, no two specimens will ever look exactly the same. Each specimen has its own distinct patterns.

Jasper is an opaque form of Chalcedony, which is a microcrystalline variety of the mineral Quartz. It often contains an abundance of impurities, and therefore some regard it as a rock instead of a mineral. Jasper is usually associated with brown, yellow, or reddish colors, but may be used to describe other opaque colors of Chalcedony such as dark or mottled green and orange.

Bamboo Leaf Jasper is said to be a grounding stone helping to stabilize and energize the physical body. It is said to activate the root chakra. Its Earth energies are said to offer balance, strength and vitality. Use this crystal to relax into a peaceful meditation as you imagine the sounds of trickling water, the scent of fresh grass, and the feel of a refreshing breeze.
