Ocean Jasper Rough Rock Stone Slab for Cabbing

This natural rough slab is triangle shaped 6.5 inches long and 1.75 to 3.25 inches wide and slanted from 9.5 to 12.5 mm thick. It weighs .54 lbs and is shown wet in the first 3 pictures.

This is a slab of orbicular Ocean Jasper from Madagascar. Jasper is a type of quartz belonging to the chalcedony family.

This variety is silicified rhyolite flow from off the northwest coast of Madagascar. It can only be seen and collected at low tide. The area has no road, so the material must be transported to civilization by boat.

This type of Jasper was so named because of its location and because it resembles the foam as the water recedes back into the ocean, with its wavy patterns of green-gray, white, cream, beige, brown, pink and marooon.

Metaphysical Properties : Ocean Jasper is believed to teach responsibility and patience, as well as aid in regulating breathing for meditation.
