Jasper, an aggregate of microgranular quartz and/or chalcedony and other mineral phases, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color; and rarely blue. The common red color is due to iron inclusions. The name means "spotted or speckled stone", and is derived via Old French jaspre. Jasper is rated between 6.5 and 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Jasper is generally associated with inner peace, harmony, tranquility and gentleness.
Petrified wood is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Petrified wood is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization. Petrified wood is rated at a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale. Petrified wood is thought to amplify longevity and slow down the aging process, as well as assist with past life recall, enhance wisdom and soul memory.
