Jasper is typically about 80% quartz (silicon dioxide) and 20% other materials. Jasper is typically found in veins and cracks in volcanic rocks, often together with chalcedony and agate. The cracks in volcanic rocks filled out by jasper often form during tectonic (earthquake and movement) activity. Tectonic activity can go on for a long time, the cracks can reopen again, the jasper can be shattered, and the voids in between the shattered rock can be healed by being filled with more jasper or other material. This is how Brecciated jasper forms. Sometimes chalcedony and macro-crystalline quartz of different colors fills the voids in the shattered rock.
Brecciated jasper is said to carry with it, all the properties of jasper. Brecciated Jasper is also said to gently stimulate and ground a person, resolving unjust circumstances to more equitable situations. Brecciated jasper is said to bring problems to light before they escalate, and for this reason is used often in worry stones to bring calming energy to the wearer. When placed under a pillow, Brecciated jasper is said to focus on better dream recall.
