Offered here is a new style of Ocean Jasper from Madagascar that I've seen come available of late. It's like a blend of Ocean, Orbiscular, and Poppy Jaspers. This sample is good for those interested in collecting the many forms of Agate, Jasper, or sometimes other minerals, or for those interested in pendant jewelry.
Ocean Jasper is a variety of Jasper which contains variably-colored orbs or spherical inclusions or zones. This material is quite attractive when polished and is used as an ornamental stone or gemstone. The name "Ocean Jasper" is used for the variety of Jasper found along the intertidal shores of northeast Madagascar.
This stone is indeed Ocean Jasper, but it has been dyed in order to obtain the unusual coloration. These come in many variations and are indeed striking.
Although this is a cab, you can also glue on "bails", or have the piece drilled to accept a pinch bail. Either approach will let you turn this sample into a fine pendant.
