Orbicular Ocean Jasper is a rare stone that comes from only one area of the world, the shoreline of northwestern Madagascar. Ocean Jasper is a soothing and nourishing stone that radiates pure happiness. A stone of spiritual wisdom and insight, one that encourages a feeling of joy and contentment. Associated with the astrological sign Capricorn. Ocean Jasper is also considered one of the most protective forms of Jasper.
The orb patterns within Orbicular Ocean Jasper are formed by chalcedony that grows around a central nucleus, creating a small stone in and of itself within the larger mass of rock. This growth pattern is reflected in the energetic qualities of the stone. The orb markings are associated with the symbolism of the circle/sphere which is traditionally symbolic of wholeness, perfection, and time, a complete and whole geometric shape without an obvious beginning or end.
