View Full Version : Subsitute for Yellow Jasper?

30-09-2006, 22:56
Hey there, I have been reading Diana Cooper's "Discover Atlantis" and am trying to do one of the exercises. It calls for:

Tektite on bright red silk (I went out and bought these specially)

North: Snow Quartz
South: Red Jasper (bought this specially)
East: Yellow Jasper
West: Jet

My only local crystal shop did not sell Yellow Jasper. I would really like to do this exercise though. Is there any other stone I could use in it's place? Or should I search online and hold off until I can get the real thing?

Thanks for the help guys :)

Hmm... maybe Tigers Eye if you have one?
I could send you a small Yellow Jasper if you want - it's only around 1 cm/1.5 cm though. PM me if you need it :)

i though tigers eye as well for some reason, so i'll give that a go!

that's very sweet of you! i'll try out the tiger's eye, if that doesn't work then i may just take you up on your offer :)

I have also seen mostly yellow pieces of mookite that might work too.

The mookaite is a very good suggestion since this stone is a variety of jasper-but to fulfill the requirements of the exercise make certain that the mookaite is yellow (or principally yellow) in color.

thank you, i have mookite, but not yellow. i shall invest in some yellow mookite from my local shop.

thanks for the help :)
