Introducing our inspiring new selection of Ocean Jasper, Amethyst Stalactites, Kambaba Jasper, Druzy Stalactites, and Orbicular Jasper featuring all new colors, patterns, shapes and cuts!
Ocean Jasper is unusual jasper found only at a remote location on the coast of Madagascar that can only be mined at low tide! The colors vary widely, including white, green, pink, red, black, blue. The wild polka dots, wavy lines, and multi-colored floret patterns of Ocean Jasper make this a gorgeous and exciting stone. Stalactites are formed at the roof of a cave and begin with one drop of mineral-rich water. When the drop falls, it leaves behind the thinnest ring of calcite. Each subsequent drop that forms and falls deposits another ring. Over time, these rings build to create a stunning column of minerals. Kambaba Jasper is one of the more exotic Jaspers, a rare orbicular variety from Madagascar and South Africa. In its depths one can literally glimpse the origins of life on our planet and touch a tangible form of the primordial ooze that nurtured our atmosphere and advanced the creation of all living things. A sedimentary stone, Kambaba Jasper is comprised of microcrystalline Quartz interlaced with Stromatolites, ancient fossilized colonies created by cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and other primeval microorganisms. These Stromatolites date back more than three billion years and are the oldest known fossils, containing the earliest records of life on Earth. Orbicular Jasper is a variety of jasper which contains variably-colored orbs or spherical inclusions or zones. Jasper is a variety of chalcedony (the quartz family) and means “spotted or speckled stone”.
