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 it's due to volcanic processes like an eruption causing the rock to become highly fractured, and then over time, these broken pieces become solidified together.

Ibis jasper gets its name because it has a similar color pallet to the Madagascar Ibis, a variety of long-legged waterfowl.
