Breccia (italian, breccia gravel, pieces, fragmented) refers to stones broken apart and naturally cemented back together by another mineral. They are usually created by weathering or the movement of water.
Breccia are similar to a conglomerate but they have more angular pieces. Ibis jasper is fragmented jasper repaired with crystal, chalcedony, or agate, all varieties of quartz. Although it has a similar color palette to polychrome jasper, found in northwestern madagascar, ibis jasper is believed to come from southern madagascar instead. It also has a shattered appearance, with terrazzo like chips or wave like folds.
The ibis are long legged waterfowl, similar in appearance to a crane. While the better known egyptian species are white and black, madagascan ibis are brownish red instead, with touches of white and blue. The stone has a similar color palette. Some pieces also look like feathers or even flocks in flight. The ibis bird is associated with the egyptian deity thoth, the god of wisdom, so the stone carries the signature of accessing esoteric information, from the akashic records to ancient sources of knowledge, developing intuition, and communicating spiritual messages.Because of the geological process that creates brecciated jasper, ibis jasper is associated metaphysically with recovery after trauma and support during stress, spiritual evolution, by helping us integrate energetic shifts, upgrades, and attunements, and releasing blockages to support breakthroughs. It may also be used break up dense energies to support the free flowing of energy in the subtle body.
