The word Jasper is from the Greek word iaspi, which means ‘spotted stone’. Brecciated comes from the word ‘breccia’, which is a geology term used when rocks composed of broken fragments cement together to form a fine-grained matrix. Brecciated Jasper is patterned with black or brown rock inclusions and patches of clear crystal.
All red forms of Jasper are believed to be powerful stones for women, especially women who are working to understand their menstrual cycle, develop their Moon magic, or increase their confidence. It is an excellent stone of protection and for dreaming.
