High/1st Grade Ocean Jasper from Madagascar's Morovato region.
Ocean Jasper, also known as Orbicular Jasper or Cellular Jasper, is a very rare variety of Jasper, a silicon dioxide mineral, and a member of the quartz family. Its defined by circular “orb” like patterns that can be seen as green, brown, blue, yellow, grey, white, pink or red. This rare stone discovered in 2000, has only one known locality that offers extreme obstacles to even get too. This mineral is mined from the base of a cliff only accessible by boat during low tide.
Ocean Jasper activates and aligns our solar plexus, heart, and throat chakras. This highly energetic channel allows one the ability to combine their will with their emotions, pushing one to achieve joy, happiness and emotional stability. Ocean Jasper helps one release any weight or strains one may carry on their heart, and urges you to vocalize and move forward from these emotional issues. Just like the water that helped create this magical stone, one must be willing to “go with the flow” when accepting this stones energy.
Most Ocean Jasper on the market now is from backstock as it has been mostly mined out from its source. These are likely to become increasingly more valuable.
