About Ocean Jasper: Ocean Jasper is a rare mineral, mined in only one place in the world, the Mine of Marovato, on the Ambolobozo Peninsula in the the north west corner of Madagascar. Is called Ocean Jasper because the deposits are part of the coastline, and can only be reached by boat, and removed only during low tide. This stone is immediately recognizable by its concentric rings of color, earning at the name "Orbicular Ocean Jasper." The most common shades are greens and whites, with the less common shades of pinks and yellows also appearing in some specimens. Ocean Jasper is believed to be a stone of strength and renewal. Like tides that ebb and flow along a shore, Ocean Jasper brings to the surface long-hidden and unresolved emotional issues and uses its gentle nurturing energies to bring healing.
