Ocean Jasper Beads
Ocean Jasper is a gemstone that is found exclusively along the north-east coast of Madagascar (a large island off of the coast of southeastern Africa) and can only be reached by boat and mined at low tide. During other times of day, the deposits of this gemstone are submerged under the Indian Ocean!
Our gorgeous Ocean Jasper beads display a pattern of wonderful swirls and spots in deep forest greens, warm yellow ochers, sandy pinks and beiges, and whites, with some transparent portions. Ocean jasper is rare and truly unique – get some before the deposit runs dry!
Ocean jasper is an “orbicular” jasper, a type of jasper which demonstrates many small spheres or orbs in its matrix which appear as circles or eyes in cut sections.
