Kiwi Jasper is a stone of communication, new beginnings, and protection. Also called Sesame Jasper, it's a pretty new addition to the crystal community, only being found in 2014/2015 in New Zealand. It is believed to be a combination of Amazonite, Tourmaline, and Quartz, instead of being a true Jasper. With its unique color and ability to be carved easily, it has gained popularity since then, but there isn't a lot of agreed information about this enigma and there still much to learn about it.
Although it may be found in other locations, Kiwi Jasper can still only naturally be found in its place of origin: New Zealand. Because of its rarity and newness to the community, beware of fakes.

Kiwi Jasper is named for its appearance with a greenish base and dark speckles, looking like the kiwi fruit. Because of its composition, it is not a uniform color and has some spots that are more or less blue, green, black, or grey, and spots that range from opaque to translucent.
NOTE: Kiwi Jasper should be fairly durable, not breaking easily, but can be scratched or carved easily  and may lose its color in prolonged exposure to the Sun's UV rays . Because it is believed to be a combination of Amazonite, Tourmaline, and Quartz, it may also contain traces of copper and aluminum that can be toxic in excess amounts .
Healing Properties of Kiwi Jasper
Communication, Courage, Earth Connection, Expression, New Beginnings, Protection, Uplifting
Metaphysically, Kiwi Jasper is an ally to the Earth and spiritual practices. It can connect you to Earth's energies, elements of nature, and even spiritual realms by absorbing negative energies and clearing a way for only positive light to shine through. This positive light can purify the mind, body, and soul, bringing balance, grounding, and shielding from more negativity. Kiwi Jasper can also strengthen the bond between the mind, body, and soul, allowing you to communicate the truth within you.
Emotionally and mentally, Kiwi Jasper uplifts, nurtures, and supports in times of stress. It can bring strength to deal with fresh starts by absorbing the negative energies that have created harmful patterns, behaviors, and emotions, like anger, frustration, and addiction. Now with the confidence to face your problems and start the healing process, it can encourage you to talk about sensitive subjects, give words to your emotions, and let you feel these emotions in order to let them pass. This freedom from negativity can bring newfound creativity, determination, relaxation, and wisdom from your experiences.
Physically, Kiwi Jasper is a tool for recovery. It is believed to support those trying to end their addictions and those healing from illnesses or injuries. It may relieve pain or tension in the body and promote overall good health.
Chocolate Calcite, another stone named after food, makes a great pair with Kiwi Jasper. They both have very similar properties and deep connection to Earth, making it easy for them to amplify each other's power. Both heal the past, present, and future, but the main difference is that where Kiwi Jasper helps you feel present by making changes to look forward to the future, Chocolate Calcite helps you feel present by making changes to break away from the past. Radiating confidence and bringing new perspectives, Chocolate Calcite shines a light of positivity though negativity that Kiwi Jasper blocks.
If you are looking to specifically enhance communication, then try Blue Aragonite, Iolite, and/or Strawberry Quartz.
If you are looking to specifically bring new beginnings, then try Green Calcite, Snowflake Obsidian, Spirit Quartz, and/or Sunstone.
If you are looking to specifically bring protection, then try Kambaba Jasper, Black Obsidian, and/or Smoky Quartz.
