1.     Color: Brecciated jasper typically displays a mix of red, brown, and beige colors. It often features patterns that resemble broken fragments or veins, giving it a mosaic-like appearance. The red hues are due to iron inclusions.

2.     Hardness: Brecciated jasper, like other forms of jasper, has a Mohs hardness of 6.5 to 7. This means it is relatively hard and durable, suitable for various types of jewelry and decorative items.

3.     Clarity: Jasper is an opaque stone, meaning it does not allow light to pass through. Brecciated jasper is no exception; its opacity is one of its defining characteristics.

4.     Luster: The luster of brecciated jasper is typically vitreous (glassy) to dull. When polished, it can exhibit a nice sheen, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.

5.     Density: The density of brecciated jasper is around 2.58 to 2.91 grams per cubic centimeter. This makes it relatively heavy for its size compared to many other minerals.

6.     Metaphysical Properties: Brecciated Jasper is often used to bring a sense of stability and grounding to those who use it, helping to balance emotional and physical energies. It is often used as a protective stone, believed to guard against negativity and harmful energies.
