Discovered in October of 1999, Ocean Jasper was found along the northwest coast of Madagascar. The deposit formed similar to a rhyolite flow but has been totally silicified. The rhyolitic spheres or orbs in Ocean Jasper come in an astonishing array of colors and color combinations. The background can be white, pink, green, red or yellow. Botryoidal formations, as well as white and deep green druzy, are also common. The Ocean Jasper deposit is located at the edge of the ocean, and can only be seen and collected from at low tide. This remote area has no roads so the material must be transported to civilization by boat. Ocean Jasper is one of our favorite minerals!
