Ocean Jasper is described as jasper but is actually a form of chalcedony. It frequently contains spherical patterns known as spherulites. It is only found in two separate deposits on Earth, both of which are located in Northern Madagascar. The first discovery of the mineral was in 1922, a slab of the material was referenced in 1927 by a German collector. It was labeled as "eye jasper." Ocean jasper has continuously run out and been rediscovered over the years, occasionally more inland or at low tide.

Ocean Jasper is a stone of patience and stability. It releases mental, spiritual, and physical blockages.
