This is a 5 lb 6.6 oz, magnificent shades of gray, black and
white sphere, 4.5” in diameter and from China. She is a beautiful sphere, silky smooth and
cool to the touch, warming quickly. Now,
she is called a jasper and she is not … she is actually a conglomerate of
marble, chert, calcite and limestone, but dominated by calcite. Bivalve (clams and the like) shells were
included in this sedimentary mixture and create a wonderful landscape of
shapes, ancient writing-like markings and symbols. This one has buds, an eye, flying saucers, tulips,
lips, a mushroom, flowers … what a delicious way to meditate and ponder!
Being basically calcite, the link to change is evident on
many levels. I found this sweet sphere
to be grounding, soothing and yet wonderfully evocative and creative. She would make a marvelous center for your
creativity altar as well as a superb meditation partner for those occasions
when you are creatively blocked. You won’t find a more attentive meditation
