This handmade, sterling silver pendant is made with a natural stone cabochon, ocean jasper from Madagascar. This stone features white orbs on an orange background.
I love ocean jasper. I bought this particular cabochon in 2000, just a few years after ocean jasper hit the market.
I made the wire wrapped pendant setting with sterling silver. As with all of my wire wrapped silver jewelry, the wire is not plated, filled or coated, but solid sterling silver.

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
