Picasso Jasper:
The Map of

Rhodochrosite, malachite, chrysanthemum stone, rhodonite, and ruby in zoisite are just a few of the crystals that have beautiful abstract patterns. Another of these crystals, one which adds a broad spectrum of colors to its palette is the aptly named Picasso marble.

Its colors, brown, black, cream, and various shades of gray often form the patterns of abstract landscapes. A major clue to the meaning of this stone can be found from the process through which these patterns form.

Picasso jasper (also called Picasso marble or simply Picasso stone) is metamorphic limestone, Metamorphosis is one of the three ways stones are formed (the other kinds of stones are igneous and sedimentary). Geologically, a metamorphic stone forms deep in the earth, its essential nature altered by heat and pressure. It may go through metamorphosis more than once, and each time new elements are added to its composition. Only those aspects of the stone which are impermeable to pressure and heat are preserved.

Of the metamorphic stones, the patterns of Picasso jasper are particularly striking, and I see them as maps (in whatever natural or polished shape it occurs) of the crystal's transformational path. I regard this crystal as an important helper for those who wish to consciously transform with ease and comfort.

Some believe this crystal can most easily assist in transformation in the area of relationships. Specifically, it is said to attract like minded people who become loyal and trusted friends. It can also help to renew old friendships that have been lost.

I would also suggest using it for the transformation of one's creativity. Anyone feeling an artistic block, whether new or lifelong, can benefit by letting the eyes travel through the patterns of Picasso jasper and allowing thought to dissolve.

In any meditation for easing the process of transformation, I recommend having this crystal (again in whatever form you have it) as a visual focus, at least in the initial stages of the meditation. Again, let the eyes travel through the patterns and allow them to teach you that the path of transformation may at times seem like a winding road. Use the crystal's pattern to remind you that with trust we always get to where we want to be.

Remember to enjoy the journey.
