Gemstone Series --- Biggs Jasper

History & Lore:
Biggs Jasper is named according to the location in which it was found. It was discovered in 1965 in Biggs, Oregon, United States, after a flood had partially destroyed the Union pacific Railroad and U.S. Highway 97. A mine was constructed after the natural catastrophe and was both owned and operated by Fred Dormaier. Although the mine is still owned by the Dormaier family it is currently inactive due to a major highway development plan.
Jasper was a favorite gemstone of ancient times and can be traced back to Greek, Hebrew, Persian, Latin, and Assyrian literature.
Jasper is a protective stone and is said to align the chakras and balance yin and yang energies. In legend Jasper was believed to protect against evil spirits and forces, and was also believed to bring courage and relief from pain. It is also said to protect against venomous snake and spider bites. Jaspers are also believed to help pregnant women while giving birth, with additional benefits including increasing milk supply during nursing, and slowing down of heavy menstrual flow.

Biggs Jasper is no longer being mined due to a major highway being developed over the location.

The sole source of Biggs Jasper can be found in Biggs, Oregon.
Jasper is rated at 6.5 to 7 on Moh's Scale of Hardness. Biggs Jasper is an opaque stone that is tan in color with dark bands and patterns of chocolate brown. It's value is determined by the saturation of its color, the beauty of the bands and patterns, and the design in which it is formed.
