Modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have eight branches which traditionally include acupuncture, massage, herbal and dietary therapy, exercise, qigong meditation, fengshui and moxibustion. (Franks, L.J., 2016) Stones were often used in conjunction with TCM healing modalities. What we do know is stones have been time tested even being studied and observed for their molecular structure, mineral content, strength and durability. When we see a stone, we first notice a stone's uniqueness of color and texture. Zebra Jasper is one of these stones. Recognized as an Earth elemental stone, it is comprised of several different stones each with a different Zebra like pattern.
Zebra Jasper stones come in multiple opaque colors carrying the energies of the type of stones they are mixed with. Australian Zebra Jasper stones are a type of jasper stone that geologists believe were formed 600 million years ago in the Upper Proterozoic era but they have not been able to explain the
origin of how this rock was formed. (Feel Crystals, 2022) This brown-pinkish stone has healing properties that bring a balance of yin and yang into our lives through grounding energy that is helpful in overcoming depression and anxiety by providing balance. It's known to protect our aura by supporting stamina and aligns with all Chakras.
Symptoms of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome strongly align with the healing energy of Zebra Jasper. Similar to the stone Ehlers Danlos Syndrome still has many unknowns about it and is a mystery to physicians as Zebra Jasper is to the geologists. Wearing any form of this stone allows the healing properties of this stone to flow, and can be used for meditation or worn to help with energy balance.
