8th Vein Orbicular Ocean Jasper Slab
This piece is 8th vein ocean jasper. Ocean jasper is only found in one place in the world, a district in Madagascar. There have been only eight veins ever found, most running out in around six months of mining. These veins are generally found near the surface. While called a jasper, recent scientific research suggests that one of the main components of this mineral is actually chalcedony! A quartz like substance that constitutes many other minerals (Onyx, Carnelian, Agates..)
Those who practice metaphysical healing believe ocean jasper helps with communication and stimulates mutually shared feelings.
