This handmade, sterling silver pendant is made with a rare natural stone cabochon. It is a dark green ocean jasper with white orbs or spots. This is a more simple pattern than some, but as an "OJ" lover, I love all the varieties and I collect them.
As with all of my wire wrapped jewelry, I used heavy sterling silver wire- not plated, filled or coated wire to finish this wire wrapped pendant. Because this setting is so simple, I think of it as a man's pendant or unisex.

pendant ---- 2.40" / 61mm long; 1.13" / 29mm wide

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
