Ocean Jasper is a rare mineral, mined in only one place in the world...
The Mine of Marovato, on the Ambolobozo Peninsula in the north west corner of Madagascar. It is called Ocean
Jasper because the deposits are part of the coastline, and can only be reached by boat, and removed only during low
tide.

The Lapidary Journal reported this description:
“This new rock has been found along the northwest coast of Madagascar after years of unsuccessful searching. The
deposit formed as a rhyolite flow but has been completely silicified. The rhyolitic eyes or orbs 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 deposit has been discovered at the edge of
the ocean. 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 stone is immediately recognizable by its concentric rings of color, earning at the name "Orbicular Ocean Jasper."
The most common colors are greens and whites, with the less common colors of pinks and yellows also appearing in
some specimens.
Ocean jasper is one of the most collectible stones in recent times. Word that the mine is running out or empty
seems to be true, as quality specimens are becoming harder to find with each passing day. This stones colors,
patterns and shapes amaze and delight!  It is another of nature’s wonderful masterpieces.
This stone is also known as the “Atlantis Stone” because it was found in the turn of the New Millennium under the
ocean.
In 2006 the last specimen from the deposit was mined. The Jasper vein was followed from the waters edge into the
side of the hill for about 45 yards. As the Ocean Jasper vein was followed it became thinner and thinner. The mine is
now depleted. The life span of this find was from about 2000 through 2006...This super find had about a 6 year life
span...Another vein was found but it is poor grade, nothing like the original. You will find the available specimens
becoming less and less attractive.
Update... November 2014
We were able to procure some collector slab specimens and a few rough slabs which we are listing here.Natural
Fractures are found in most Ocean Jasper pieces. This looks to be about our last new listings of Ocean Jasper. We
don't expect these to last long at the amazing low prices we have set fot these specimens..."He who hesitates loses..."
