Because of its unique hue, it is treated like most gemstones and has been devalued over the years by being imitated, synthesized and with the use of other types of treatments.
Brecciated Jasper- is also known as Poppy Jasper ranges from deep brown, brick red and cream colors swirling through it. It also contains hematite, an iron compound, which gives it both its red tones and the dark bands. Primarily deep red–veined or patterned with brown, black and beige–and sometimes has clear crystal inclusions.
