Brecciated Jasper in The Morning Light

Quartz, as we all know, is a very large crystal family. There is the Matriarch, Clear Quartz at the head. Standing at her sides are her sisters Amethyst, Citrine and Smokey. As other minerals are included into the family, we have their many cousins; the agates, Chalcedonies and Jaspers. Today’s crystal post is about a cousin in the Jasper branch of the family tree, Brecciated Jasper. It is sometimes called Poppy Jasper because of its red/orangey spots. The way this crystal forms is quite interesting. Its name Brecciated means Broken Fragments. Angled pieces of stone are cemented together over long periods of time. Forming these lovely stones.

Jaspers as a group tend to be multicolored. What separates this type is, it contains hematite. Some of the best sources to find this beautiful stone are Egypt, India, Australia, and Brazil, to name a few. The most common colors are red and brown but yellow and orange can also be found. On the Mohs Scale it is a strong 6.5 to 7.

Being a Root and Sacral Chakra stone, some of the qualities it has to offer anyone who works with it are:

  • Decreases stress, and help to feel calm and safe.
  • Increased organizational and time management skills.
  • Help to think clearly and focus.
  • Help to be brave and take action toward a goal.
  • Inspires you to think and dream big.
  • Increased creativity.
  • Increased energy and endurance.
  • Gives the courage to be honest with oneself and others.
  • Strengthens the digestive system.
  • Helps you heal faster and regain your vitality after illness.
  • Helps detox the body of unwanted toxins.

I hope you found this introduction to Brecciated Jasper interesting and helpful. If it seems like something you would like to work with, I encourage you to acquire a piece and give it a try. Remember that crystals and minerals were given to the Earth to enhance our lives. I am in no way suggesting anyone leave allopathic medicine. Rather the purpose of these weekly articles is to offer alternative options to enhance your lives, our wellbeing, and the healing process.

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
