IBIS JASPER FOR SALE

Ibis jasper is the trade name for a colorful type of brecciated jasper found in Madagascar. This jasper is made up of broken, angular pieces of jasper cemented together by geological processes to form a solid mass.

Breccias can form in several ways. Sometimes they form due to weathering, which breaks apart the original rock. The pieces then accumulate at the base of an outcrop or maybe a stream deposit. Finally, they become reburied and solidify back together, forming a solid rock. Other times volcanic processes like eruptions greatly fracture the rock, and then over time these broken pieces are resolidified into a new mass.

Ibis jasper gets its name because it has a similar color pallete to the Madagascar ibis, a variety of long-legged water-fowl.
