Brecciated jasper is a type of jasper that forms when fragments of pre-existing jasper are cemented together by a secondary mineral.
The resulting rock has a unique appearance, with angular fragments of various sizes and colours surrounded by a finer-grained matrix.
Brecciated jasper is often found near fault zones, where the shaking and fracturing of rocks creates the conditions for brecciation to occur.
The name "brecciated" comes from the Italian word "breccia," which means "fragmented" or "broken."
It is said to be a grounding stone that can help bring a sense of stability and balance to one's life.
It is also believed to promote vitality and energy, making it a good choice for those who are feeling physically or emotionally drained.
Brecciated jasper is often used to promote creativity and encourage new ideas, as well as to help one overcome feelings of stress or anxiety.
