Ocean Jasper Beads
Ocean Jasper only comes from one place in the world, northwestern Madagascar. It is found in the Analalava district of the Sofia region in the former province of Mahajanga. This stone is a beautiful orbicular jasper that comes in almost every color you can imagine, containing an array of patterns and designs that look like layers. Ocean Jasper formed as a rhyolitic igneous rock, rich in silica. As the lava cooled, the silica precipitated out of the magma, forming little spherical inclusions. These little spheres are seen as a “full circle” in healing reminding one to put out what they would like to get back. Ocean Jasper is very grounding when used on the base chakra and helps one to connect with the earth. It also helps in communication and conveying ideas effectively.
