The term "brecciated" comes from the geological term "breccia," which refers to a rock made up of fragmented fragments bonded together in a fine-grained matrix. Brecciated jasper is made up of a variety of stone fragments that have been fused together. Brecciated Jasper can be considered a form of Red Jasper.

The capacity of Red Jasper to stop hemorrhages and lower pulse rate has long been touted. A young woman was cured of chronic hemorrhaging by wearing Red Jasper, according to the Gemmarum & Lapidum Historia, published in 1636. Red Jasper was also thought to be a stone for soldiers during the Middle Ages, as it was meant to improve their strength and courage. A chunk of Red Jasper was allegedly put on the hilt of 'Balmung,' the fabled sword of the Norse hero Siegfried, according to folklore.
