The Indian Blanket Jasper is really an ash flow. Sometimes it looks like a chert, sometimes an agate, and sometimes an opalite. Most of it cuts and polishes well and it has become popular with local jewelry artists. Not to be confused with the Indian Paint, or Navajo Blanket stone that comes from Death Valley, Calif., true Indian Blanket comes from Holt canyon near the town of Enterprise, Utah.

This Jasper gets it’s name from the beautiful colors and patterns it shares with some Native American fabrics. The colors are usually nice earthy tones of red, gold, brown, black, beige, or purple. The different shades in high quality Indian Blanket jasper are unique and striking in both color and pattern. Enterprise, Utah is the only known source for this stone; making it somewhat rare.

As with all stones, natural fissures can be present. These fissures should be inspected prior to cutting, trimming, and shaping. Stabilizing fissures with clear Opiticon jewelers epoxy may be considered.

Metaphysical Characteristics

Jasper is sometimes called the nurturing stone for its nurturing and protective energies. An elemental Earth stone, Jasper’s frequency is slow and constant, aligned with the electromagnetic energies of the planet. It enables one to be more present in the physical body and conscious of Nature and one’s surroundings. It encourages one to celebrate moments of isolation to absorb, reflect, and connect with these energies and enkindles an awareness of the spiritual connection we hold with all living things.
