Ethically Sourced Desert Jasper

Know where your crystals come from

This Desert Jasper comes from artisanal miners in northwestern Madagascar. Artisanal mining for jasper typically has a low environmental impact and would be relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand polishes stones in Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at one major gem show in the United States. Every year the lapidary takes on a major charity project at a rural school. Previous projects have included installing bathrooms, creating a playground, and building a sunshelter for parents.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar. In 2022, we plan to build a library with books in Malagassi and French.

Desert Jasper Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published June 2017  •  Updated January 2023  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Desert Jasper is a delightful polychrome Jasper mined in Madagascar.  It was first discovered in the 21st century when prospectors were searching for another deposit of Ocean Jasper.  While both are sold as “jaspers,” Ocean Jasper is actually a Rhyolite, while Desert Jasper is a true jasper.  It typically is a mixture of reddish-orange, greyish-blue, and neutral tans, but occasionally happy hues of purple, pink, green and yellow show up.  Energetically it is both cheerful and practical.  It deepens our connection to Mother Earth and all her children great and small.  It can help us find a new beginning or make it through a gentle ending.

    Today I received my crystals! I am beyond happy about them. It brings me so much joy to have stones that I can feel confident about the ethics in, and I feel as if everything has such a pure energy because of that. Overall, I am just overjoyed with what I received, both in physical items and in the customer service from you.

    Thank you for your help in answering my questions, thank you for carefully selecting the crystals, and thank you for caring about ethics enough to make a change in the crystal world. I am very grateful for what you have done so far and what you will continue to do!

  3. Syd C (Hong Kong) (verified owner) to all these, and Julia has been super-patient and generous with her advice. I ended up buying a number of stones, one of which is desert jasper. I carry it (together with others) with me frequently, still learning and definitely amazed with the positive and strong energy each brings. Thx Julie!

    Loved our first order. The most potent and deep stones we have purchased. Have referred already to a family member and grateful for your shop to have somewhere to confidently refer her and other family to

    For a long time I put off ordering a Desert Jasper. Sure, it was one of the most dramatic looking varieties of Jasper, but I already had plenty of Jasper in my collection. When I did order it, I got a wonderful surprise. It’s every bit as beautiful as the photo suggests, with desert colors vividly contrasting with a streak of blue-grey like the sky. The surprise is how gentle its energy is, so much softer and sweeter than a Red or even a Yellow Jasper, yet just as firm and strong. This is a very easy stone to carry all day, a stone for both action and restful thought.

    Your stones arrived today. Thank you so much! My dog tried to lick the desert jasper as soon as I opened it, so I’m taking that as a good sign. :)
