Ocean Jasper is also called Sea Jasper, with a distinction. Ocean Jasper is the trademarked name for material from the original mine near Marovato on the Ambolobozo Peninsula of Madagascar, owned by Paul Obenich. Sea Jasper is similar to Ocean Jasper, but is collected from the Madagascar Minerals mines found in the same area a short distance away. Both are a spherulitic variety of Chalcedony, micro-crystallized Quartz colored by oxides, iron and other impurities, with Quartz and Feldspar forming the spherical (orbicular) structures. Background colors may be green, brown, cream or white, red, pink or yellow, with orb-like inclusions in various colors and combinations. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common. Since the composition and metaphysical properties are the same, both will be referred to as Ocean Jasper for the purposes of this page.
Like all Jaspers, Ocean Jasper alleviates stress and induces tranquility. Its cleansing effect eliminates negative energy and stabilizes the aura. It makes an ideal worry or rubbing stone for soothing the nerves and increasing one’s focus, and is a wonderful stone for banishing nightmares or harmful thoughts
