I love Ocean Jasper!! They are stones which help to foster Joy in ones life in my experience.
This delightful 2 inch long Ocean Jasper Mosaic Beauty from Madagascar, weighing 108 grams, or 3.8 ounces, nearly a quarter pound, displays a lovely taupe, sand, cream and green background with swirling ochre bands and irregular dark spots clustered in one section of the surface, creating a complex but soothing painterly surface.
The stone is worn smooth by the action of the ocean, and is the perfect size to hold in the hand during meditation or energy treatments, and also large enough to make a distinctive centerpiece for your altar, night table, or computer work-station.
Ocean jasper is at once beautiful and fanciful! This beauty provides a buoyant, uplifting energy. Its vibrant colors call us to become more conscious of the joy in living, and to experience a more playful attitude toward everything we do.
Ocean Jasper in all its forms, colors and patterns, helps us to connect with the Ocean of Wisdom that resides in the collective unconscious of humanity, helping us to creatively communicate the timeless truths of existence in symbols, myths, stories, dance, pictures, and song that are in tune with the current "zeitgeist", the Spirit of the Age in which we live.
Properties of Ocean Jasper
Jasper is a form of what mineralogists call "cryptocrystalline" quartz, known more commonly as "chalcedony". Ocean Jasper is a rare form of jasper found only at the ocean's edge in Madagascar, and collectible only at low tide.
Ocean Jasper occurs in an amazing variety of colors and shapes, often displaying colorful patterns resembling biomorphic forms, with stripes, circles, and mandalas. Many pieces display small surface indentations which contain colorful microcrystalline druzy clusters that add to their inherent beauty.
