Maligano Jasper is the name given to a recently discovered brecciated Jasper variety that was found in Indonesia around 2011-2012. The name comes from the small village it was found in on the island of Sulawesi (part of the four Greater Sunda Islands). It contains multiple different colors of Jasper (blue, red, orange, yellow, grey and beige) with veins of a greyish-silver Agate that has filled the cavities. At the time of this writing (July 2020) this stone has still yet to “take-off” on the market. In fact, many people in the geology and crystal community have never even heard of this new Jasper. We believe it is due to the inaccessibility of the deposit, as well as the limited amount that is usually pulled out of the ground. We’ve never seen large quantities of this mineral after it has been cut into slabs or as tumbling material. Those are indeed the two main ways that this mineral is sold, with rough being extremely hard to get a hold of.
If you are looking for a cabochon, expect to pay on the higher side, simply due to the rarity and cost of the raw material itself. Add that to the precision of a master craftsman and you have yourself a certainly valuable, but costly final product. Either way, we always suggest going with what your heart desires. We knew the first time we saw this mineral that it was valuable so when we had the opportunity, we grabbed as much as possible. We fell in love with Maligano Jasper instantly and admired the great detail Mother Earth chose to display under a small village in Indonesia!
Maligano Jasper helps one shed layers within themselves that no longer serve them. These unnecessary attributes add additional weight whether it’s emotional, mental or psychological. This will only lead to negative thought patterns and bad habits. Maligano Jasper transforms our spirit from within and provides an aura that can closely resemble a “rebirth” effect. This pushes one to not only continue shedding layers of themselves, but also to begin questioning their surroundings and interactions daily. Ask yourself, “what benefit do I get by being around these people”. Most of the time one will come to the realization that the intentions of others provide no actual benefit. This mischaracterization was most likely hidden due to one’s lack of judgement regarding others.
As you continue working with Maligano Jasper and going through the powerful transformation it brings about, one will also begin to loosen their minor obsessions with invaluable things. This revelation may be emotionally taxing, but is for the betterment of your own spiritual evolution. This will soon allow one to realize first hand one of life's most important lessons; happiness can only begin from within, and will only extend as far as you allow it to.
