Mineralogy of Brecciated Jasper
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Color: Red, white, yellow, brown and black
Crystal System: Hexagonal/Trigonal
Transparency: Translucent to Opaque
Location: Jasper is found throughout the world. The most notable deposits are found in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Madagascar, Russia, South Africa, the United States, and Uruguay.
Mineral Family: True Jasper is a Silicate mineral. However, “jasper” is a term that is often used to describe any spotted stone. As such many varieties of spotted Rhyolite, a type of igneous rock, are misrepresented as jaspers. For example, “Ocean Jasper” or “Leopardskin Jasper” are both igneous rocks rather than true Jaspers. From a geological point of view, only spotted microcrystalline Quartz may be properly referred to as Jasper. True Jasper is a tiny twig on a far off branch of the crystal tree, scientifically it is a “subdivision of a subdivision of a subdivision, of a subdivision of a subdivision!” Silicate minerals form the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedra – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the three corners. These tetrahedras connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Quartz is a large mineral family in its own right, and has two main subdivisions, macrocrystalline (crystals that are large enough to be seen by the naked eye, for example, Amethyst) and microcrystalline (crystals so small they can only be seen through a microscope, for example Agate). All microcrystalline Quartz fall under the subcategory of Chalcedony, which is then further subdivided. One of these categories is Jasper. Brecciated Jasper is distinguished by its red and creamy white spots.
Formation: True Jasper is opaque Quartz with numerous inclusions. Clear Quartz forms when silica acid solidifies in igneous rocks. Jasper, by contrast, forms when silica acid penetrates clay or sand, and solidifies in sedimentary rocks. Where the silica acid cools it hardens into Quartz, but with the addition of millions of tiny particles of sand, clay, and other minerals. These inclusions give Jasper their brilliant colors and random markings. Brecciated Jasper is a wonderful example of true Jasper, its various colors and markings each signify a different foreign inclusion.
Mining: Typically mined from the primary deposits which still have their original relationship with the host rock.
Enhancements: All Jaspers are natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
History of Brecciated Jasper
The name “Jasper” is a generic name given to any spotted stone as well as most semi-transparent or opaque Chalcedony. As a result, it can be difficult to know exactly which stone is being referenced in ancient and medieval writings. Brecciated Jasper may be considered a form of Red Jasper.
Red Jasper has long been credited for its supposed ability to stop hemorrhages and reduce pulse rate. In 1636, the Gemmarum et Lapidum Historia described how a young woman was cured from chronic hemorrhaging by wearing Red Jasper. During the Middle Ages, Red Jasper was also considered a stone for warriors and was said to increase their strength and courage. According to legend, a piece of Red Jasper was set on the hilt of ‘Balmung,’ the legendary sword of the Norse hero Siegfried.

Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.
These Brecciated Jaspers were mined and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sell tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry, and are one of my favorite suppliers.
