Brecciated Jasper is an opaque red crystal with a mix of cream, brown, and gray colors that form swirling patterns throughout. It can be veined with silver-gray Hematite in some pieces. It is commonly found as tumbled stones with a glassy shine.
Brecciated derives from the term “breccia”, which is a geology word that is utilized when rocks consist of shattered fragments cement together to make a matrix that is grained finely. "Formed as jasper is shattered by tectonic activity and the created spaces are filled with more jasper; chalcedony, and different varieties of macrocrystalline quartz. The deep red colors are due to hematited embedded within the jasper." - Philip Permutt, The Crystal Healer Volume 2 (2018)
