The Jasper in The Wall of The Heavenly Jerusalem


Jasper belongs to the mineral class of oxides and thus to quartz and is related to chalcedony. The chemical formula of both types of rock is SiO2.

Influencing factors on the development of the stones
During many thousands of years the stone is constantly growing and changing due to external influences. Even small changes in the environment affect the stone and influence its development. Take for example a simple gemstone, the formed amethyst. If it continues to be exposed to heat, it changes color from purple to yellow. It is then classified as a citrine. A second example: an additional addition of iron to the jasper determines whether it remains a "yellow" or becomes a "red". If we expose the yellow jasper to great heat, in nature this happens through a volcanic eruption, it can even become a "crystal clear jasper".

In the Gospel according to John, Jesus is already presented in chapter 1 as the light of the world. This is comparable to the sun, which is perceived with the natural eyes as yellow light source. Under the heat of life, the yellowish stone becomes red, because this light took human form. As the Son of Man, He not only bore our infirmities and diseases, Jesus died on the cross, shed His blood for our sins.

Jesus was righteous and that is why he rose from the dead. The crystal-bright jasper was formed in the deepest dephts of the earth. After his resurrection, this magnificent stone could be seen, a flawless jasper, like a crystal, of unique beauty.

Origin of the word: The name jasper comes from the Greek and means "speckled" or "patterned. Based on this definition, we can easily see that it cannot be a diamond. The essential characteristic of jasper is its uniqueness, which the diamond lacks. If we take a closer look at the following pictures, specimens 1 and 2, we can see that parts of the stone are already crystallized. The Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, was and is unique, just as those who believe in him are unique personalities. The name Jasper occurs seven times in the Bible, three times in the Tanakh, the Old Testament, and four times in the New Testament.
