This is the Madagascar orbicular "ocean jasper" that you cannot obtain any more. The deposit has been depleted of all the material that was easy to get at low tide. Diving will be required to obtain any more some day. The lower grades ocean jasper are, of course, still available. But this is number one grade. Go look on Ebay and you will see slices this size and quality--and not even polished--going for upwards of $200. This particular slice (which I polished myself on my vibratory lap) contains countless galaxies of spherical little planets with multiple rings. Colors include peach, viridian green, and pink. One area has vugs of radiating silica crystals. This piece is designed to be displayed. One side is polished to a mirror finish. The back side is unpolished but smooth.

Melody (1995) writes that "orbicular jasper ... helps one to accept responsibility and to increase the attribute of patience. It has been used to facilitate continuity in circular breathing during healing and/or meditative states."

She goes on to write that it helps with nutrition and digestion (347).

The piece is 1/4+" X 3-5/8" X 6+" in size. See penny for scale. Photographed in full sunshine, dry.

Please note that I am willing to ship internationally but will need to obtain a shipping quote and invoice you. So withhold payment until you receive my correct invoice. Item guaranteed to satisfy.
