Ibis Jasper is a new stone from Madagascar. It is a specific type of jasper called brecciated jasper. Brecciated jasper is jasper that has been broken up into fragments by earth movement or water and then glued back together by nature with another mineral. In the case of Ibis Jasper, this mineral is quartz, in a variety of forms. So the basic properties of Ibis Jasper are grounding and nurturing, as are all jaspers, and replacing overwhelm and chaos with a sense of order, calm and tranquility--which are characteristics of all brecciated jaspers.
