DRAGON STONE – also known as DRAGON BLOOD JASPER (The Stone of Perception & Personal Power) is a magical stone designed by nature and capturing a rich “dragon green” matrix (epidote) that is dotted with deep red drops of “dragon’s blood” (really, red piedmontite). Energetically, this crystal is helpful for enhancing our vital Chi or life force energy. It is a stone for strength, vitality and courage. This stone helps one find the powers of love, forgiveness and compassion, the exact energies used to tame the “inner dragon”. As with all jasper stones, dragon stone works steadily rather than rapidly. It has been said that the best way of breaking an old habit is to introduce a new one. That is Dragon Stone's special talent. Emotionally, Dragon Stones helps one develop self-confidence, a stronger will, an open expression of feeling and affection, a willingness to help others for the greater good, and the persistence required to make real and effective change. Physically, it seems to aid endurance, and to inspire one to work hard to be well. This includes diet and exercise regimes for getting in shape. Spiritually, Dragon Stone can inspire one to place one's self-serving tendencies into service of the well-being of the world.
