This handmade, wire wrapped pendant is made with a rare natural stone called Ocean Jasper (with druzy). The material is mined out, which makes it hard to find, with the better material even more hard to find. This is a beautiful orby stone with the coveted orangy pink salmon orbs against the darker green background. Through in the plentiful druzy and you have a stunner.
I made the setting with solid sterling silver- not filled, coated or plated. I chose a simpler design so as not to compete with the stone and I added some reinforcement at the tip where there is some druzy. The pendant has a nice silver look with overwhelming the OJ.

More about Ocean Jasper:
Ocean jasper is a rare, collectable 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
