Large, 7.8" Ocean Jasper Sphere - 23.9 lbs

This is a large, polished stone sphere made of ocean jasper from the Ambolobozo Peninsula of Madagascar. It's 7.8" wide and weighs 23.9 lbs. These spheres have a very unique character, as the patterns and colors are so different between them. Comes with a wooden display stand.

The quality of this ocean jasper sphere isn't as nice as some of the other larger spheres that we've listed previously, hence the lower price.

Ocean jasper is a rare type of silicified rhyolite (considered both an agate and a jasper), mined in a single location on the Ambolobozo Peninsula of northern Madagascar. The deposits are found on the coastline, hence the name, and can only be reached by boat and mined during low tide. 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 backgrounds can be white, pink, green, red, or yellow. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common.
