Ocean Jasper is a rare stone, mined in only one place in the world off of the coast of Madagascar. The deposits can only be reached by boat and mined during low tide. It is said to be a stone of joy, helping the wearer to focus on the positive aspects in their life, increase cooperation in the home, support expressions of love, and increase patience.
