I recommend Red Jasper to people who are looking for a protection stone because in Ancient times it was referred to as the Warrior Stones (in some cultures it still is.)
It was given to policemen, fireman, warriors. ems, military, etc.
It is also one of the main stones used by AA for assisting in sobriety because it stablizes mood & assists with courage, as well as, protection.
If you are comfortable with the stone then I say to use it.
