Several stones have earned the name Dragon stone, or have been called dragon or snake related names, often based on their appearance. Either “blood stains” on green (skin) colored stones (Dragon’s Blood Jasper) or stones with reptilian-like patterns (Serpentine, Septarian Stone or Snake Skin Agate), these stones have all been used for their “healing” properties. Below you will find the distinct differences (and similarities), that associate these mystical stones!
Dragon’s Blood Jasper
AKA Dragon Stone is is a magical stone designed by nature and capturing a rich “dragon green” matrix (epidote) that is dotted with deep red drops of “dragon’s blood” (really, red piedmontite). This is the stone of for perception and personal power. Energetically, this crystal is helpful for enhancing our vital Qi or life force energy.
This stone is an excellent stone for meditation. It can be used to clear clouded areas of all the Chakra and especially to assist in opening the Heart Chakra. It is also believed to help activate the kundalini, or ‘serpent fire’ energies. By placing this stone on the Crown Chakra, it initiates the movement of kundilini energy up the spine. Relaxes one’s overall nature. Serpentine helps us with better control in our lives.
Septarian concretions or septarian nodules, AKA Dragon Stone, are concretions containing angular cavities or cracks, which are called “septaria”. Septarian is a healing stone beneficial to overall health and well being. It gives relief for muscle spasms, nurtures, grounds and works on the Root Chakra. Septarian brings calming energies which have a nurturing feel to them, and can bring feelings of joy and spiritual uplifting.
Snake Skin Agate
Resembling the skin of a snake in appearance, this extraordinary agate stone offers the encouragement of self-esteem and self-awareness. It has been used to initiate the upward spiral of the kundalini energy through the Chakra system. Like a snake, it surges forward, activating all energies in its path. It is often expressed that by the action of kundalini rising, you receive a feeling of a renewed love for life.
Ohko Dragon Stone
The Ohko dragon stone, (Dragon Stone) is a rock that resembles dragon scales. Ohko stone is basically composed of hardened clay, which has been know to be very fragile, the cratered surface of the Ohko stone results in many mini-caves and nooks for anchoring moss and plants alike. These is an argillaceous rock, whose holey structure and warm tones make it an eye-catcher for your aquarium or water foutain that can give it a very natural impression.
Atlantisite is a combination of two powerful minerals, which take on the metaphysical properties of both green serpentine and stichtite. It also includes chromite and magnetite. Atlantiste is believed to be a healing stone that stimulates personal power and is an excellent crystal for working on the Solar Plexus Chakra. It enhancing our senses and feeling of security allowing us to establish our “boundaries”. It lends a calming and peaceful air to the area in which it is placed. It balances mood swings and making us more aware of our own emotions, promoting inner peace.
This stone is used to stimulate and open the body’s meridian pathway and assists the (Qi) energy to rise effortlessly. As this energy comes in contact with the Solar Plexus, it can disperse with conscious direction toward any imbalance. This is how the stone’s energy can be of assistance to disorders in all areas of the body. Atlantisite is a relatively new discovery in the gem and mineral world. It is a unique combination of colors. It includes the yellow-green matrix of serpentine that holds a purple and green combination of stichtite, only occurring in “Stichtite Hill” a small hilltop in Zeehan, Tasmania, where it is mined exclusively. Tasmanite and Atlantisite are two different types of gem.

They are archetypes of power, sovereignty, strength, wisdom and nobility. The dragon’s features and abilities have changed throughout the years due to cross-cultural stories. The class of stones in this category all resemble dragons, either by the scaling of patterns, the green, red or brown coloring of the “skin” or the formation of the stone’s minerals.

Cleansing & Charging Dragon Stones
~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.
~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy. A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.

The Power of Color
Color plays a major role in determining how your crystal can help you. A crystal’s color is due to its combination of minerals, which give it it’s own personality. It contributes in what attracts you to it. The psychological aspects of color determine how a crystal’s healing properties work.
