Ibis Jasper Flame, Madagascar

Ibis Jasper is the trade name for a new Madagascan brecciated Jasper. Breccia (Italian, "gravel, pieces, fragmented") refers to stones broken apart and later cemented back together by another mineral, often Quartz. The ibis are long legged waterfowl, similar in appearance to a crane. While the better known Egyptian species are white and black, Madagascan ibis are brownish red, with touches of white and blue. The word is pronounced like "eye-bis". Stump sold separately.
