This is an extra large Red Jasper STAR BEING / ET / ALIEN crystal skull with a high Hematite content. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. It has been here charging with Synergy for 4+ years now.
It appears dark at first but the closer you look the more intricate patterns and formations you will see. Teeny tiny sparkles catch the light when it is moved around under a bright light source, too. Very cool!
There are some tiny organic inclusions here and there that you may be able to feel subtly as you run your fingers over the stone. They can resemble fine lines/linear indents on the surface, small notches, or look like tiny pinpricks/indents. ALL inclusions come from 100% natural parts of the stone. I always pick by energy FIRST! The photos don't do it justice, I apologize. It's much nicer 'in person' than the photos show, I guarantee it.
It weighs about 11.1oz and measures approximately 70mm / 2 5/8" inches long by 64mm / 2 3/8" inches tall. Code-050823-20881
Red Jasper has sometimes been called the “Stone of Counselors and Healers" as well as the "Earth Stone."

It is a must have stone for all people working with crystal healing and other stones; it’s thought to induce health and re-birth.
It is often used by Indigenous healers for protection, strong Grounding, self-healing and remembering dreams.
It is also said to afford some protection of the First and Third Chakra area.
It has often been used to focus on and "activate" the first Chakra, in order to increase one's life-force energies, (also known as Chi, Mana, Prana etc.)
In Crystal Healing, Red Jasper is used for Self-Healing and increasing one's strength, both emotional and physical.
Red Jasper is associated with the Root or Base Chakra but may be used to assist with the balancing all of the Chakras, as being strongly Grounded is a necessity for balance, on all levels.
Hematite (sometimes spelled Hemetite). Hematite is a must for anyone interested in working with crystals and stones. It is said to assist in grounding and calming and in manifesting Divine Light in your life. It deflects and dissolves negative energies.
Hematite is said to help one to 'sort things out' and can be used for memory enhancement, original thinking and technical knowledge. Hematite, especially in its natural crystalline form, is traditionally thought to bring peace, self-control and inner happiness.
It is a calming energy and is said to attract "kind" love and act as a stabilizing force.
In Crystal Healing, Hematite is used to calm the nerves, reduce pain, decrease insomnia, and to align the spine and speed the mending of broken bones. Some Indigenous healers used it for blood disorders.
Hematite is associated with the Root Chakra.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
