Ocean Jasper is not a jasper. It is an orbicular chalcedony instead. It consists of spherical chalcedony, quartz and chalcedony grains, and star bursts and druzes of quartz crystals. Ocean Jasper was discovered in October 1999 by Paul Obeniche near the village of Marovato. Mr. Obeniche is the mentor of Nader Kawar, the owner of Enter the Earth. We took over operations of the mines when he retired in 2013. Rough material has been found alone, washed out by severe weather, in small pockets, or in a number of different veins. Each vein has distinct characteristics. You can read more about them on our Ocean Jasper geology blog.
While the Ocean Jasper found near the village of Marovato is better known, a second deposit is found further inland near the village of Kabamby. They are about ten miles apart. While the Marovato material varies greatly in color, Kabamby Ocean Jasper is consistently green and yellow. It tends to have larger orbs and a polygonal patterning created when they touch.
Ocean Jasper is associated metaphysically with purification, balancing “parts to wholes”, like working on a specific chakra and then helping it integrate back into the energy body, and emotional, mental, and physical well being.
