Ocean Jasper is a rare stone from Madagascar. It was never very plentiful. Sadly, it has been depleted. It is in my top 5 of stones because of the incredible orbs, patterns and colors. This round cab is "old dig" material with the pink orbs against green. I have wire wrapped a lot of this material in my day and I'm pleased to be offering this one, too.
This beautiful pendant is handcrafted with solid sterling silver (not filled, coated or plated). I wrapped this with a little frilliness because the cab is just so pretty with bright feminine colors. The prongs are handmade, too, and hold the stone securely.

More about Ocean Jasper:
Ocean jasper is a rare, collectible and popular stone from the north-east coast of Madagascar near the village of Morovato. Before the supply was depleted, it was found off the coast at low tide. It was always in limited supply due to the difficulty in collecting it. Ocean jasper is a type of jasper called orbicular jasper because of the orb patterns found in it. It is alternatively called an agate, as well. It has remained so popular because of the incredible colors and sometimes surreal picture scapes created by the orbs. No stone is quite like it. Ocean jasper is one of my personal favorite stones. I am constantly on the lookout to bring you the quickly disappearing higher qualities of this unique stone.
Ocean jasper is said to:
increase expressions of love
focus the positive aspects of life
stimulate the solar plexus, heart and throat chakras
bring relaxation and cooperation
