Last year, some of the members of the CAIPRS team were given suleiman stones from India. They are said to have protective properties.
I thought I would share the description of them that was given to me by Deb Ahern, director of ghosts and hauntings for the CAIPRS team:
This stone is composed of silicone dioxide (quartz) with flowing bands, stripes, and pools of clear crystalline to solid white that contrast sharply with jet black flows in the background. Delicate shades of brown, purple, blue, orange, and cinnabar are sometimes also found in this material.
When polished, the surface luster is very bright and shiny as opposed to a duller or waxier surface luster found non some of the other striped jaspers and agates. This material can be confused with Mexican Zebra Jasper or Striped Agates Onyx and Jaspers from other localities.
It is easy to recognize by both appearance and vibration after you get to know it. During research of this stone, the only references to this stone are in ancient Sanskrit, Farsi, and Tibetan texts. Traditionally, this stone has been used as a strong protective talisman and for channeling. It was also used to consume negative entities and then put into salt water to dissolve the entity and cleanse the stone. It is also quite effective in balancing Yin/Yang energies.
There is a couple on Cape Cod who sell an incredible assortment of stones and crystals (their knowledge is extensive) who are at most of the psychic fairs that CAIPRS goes to. I will try to find their information for you and will post it as soon as I can.
