While Ocean Jasper® only comes from one place in the world, the northwestern corner of Madagascar, there are two distinct deposits, about ten miles apart: Marovato, along the shoreline, and Kabamby, further inland. While the veins in Marovato are currently tapped out, the mine at Kabamby is still productive, yielding a distinctly yellow and green stone, sometimes red and cream. Its orbs tend to be larger than the Marovato material and can produce a unique geometric patterning where they touch one another.

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.

This sphere has a snake skin pattern produced when individual orbs of Kabamby Ocean Jasper® contact one another, producing geometric shapes that almost resemble the Platonic solids, rather than spheres. The majority of it is purplish red and golden yellow, with white highlights and red dots. One end is green and yellow instead. There are some natural voids across the surface, created by hollow spaces between orbs in the original rough. Almost all Ocean Jasper® has natural fractures, due to the brittle nature of chalcedony. There are some small cracks on this sphere, mostly between layers of orbs.
The sphere measures approximately 3 1/4" across and weighs approximately 2.01 lbs.
