Healing Properties of Ocean Jasper

Spiritual: Ocean Jasper inspires us to be an active force of goodness in the world.  It reminds us that we have a duty to others, as well as to ourselves, and that one of the clearest spiritual paths is found in service and good works.  Ocean Jasper invites us to walk our talk and to let our behavior showcase our true beliefs.  If we believe in love, then Ocean Jasper asks us to act with love.  If we believe in fairness, then Ocean Jasper asks us to act fairly.  Whatever we believe, it asks us take action and to use our natural gifts to uplift and inspire.  Ocean Jasper help us to flow with the rhythms of life and to be patient with ourselves and others as we evolve.  It is a fantastic tool for soul healing and exploring karmic ties.  It helps us to learn from the past, both this life as well as past-lives, so that we can gain wisdom and move forward towards enlightenment.  If we are searching for our spiritual path, it encourages us to enjoy the adventure of our soul quest and to keep asking the good questions and doing the good actions.  Ocean Jasper is attuned to the Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart and Throat Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Leo and Capricorn. It is connected to the element Earth and vibrates to the number 6.

Emotional: Ocean Jasper brings a beautiful energy of calmness and dependability.  It inspires self-acceptance and self-reliance.  It also encourages us to find and nurture good people we can call upon for support whenever it’s needed.  Ocean Jasper is especially good for anyone who is dealing with children or young people and who needs to be a safe and wise adult they can rely on.  It helps us to take fears and concerns seriously, rather than be dismissive.  It encourages healthy resolutions to problems, big and small, and to handle problems immediately rather than putting them off in the hope they’ll just go away.  Ocean Jasper is also highly recommended when we are dealing with our own inner-child, who may have emotional wounds that have never been properly addressed.  Ocean Jasper asks us to give that inner-child the support and love that’s needed, and to be the parent our inner-child requires so it can feel safe and heal.  No matter who we are dealing with, Ocean Jasper reminds us it’s not enough to just feel empathy, we have to take appropriate action too.

Mental: Ocean Jasper helps us cultivate patience with things that are outside of our control and to take responsibility for those things that are in our control.  Most importantly, it helps us to know the difference!  When things are wrong, Ocean Jasper invites us to rise up and be part of the solution in whatever way we can. It reminds us that we don’t need to know all the answers at the beginning, but we do need to be actively engaged and to play to our strengths.  It reminds us that just because something seemed true in the past, that doesn’t mean it was actually true then or that it is true now.  Ocean Jasper reminds us to think carefully like a wise adult, rather than simply reacting emotionally like a child. Although Ocean Jasper encourages service, it does not tolerate victim or martyr mentality. Instead we are forced to acknowledge that if we are adults, we ultimately get to choose how we spend our time and energy.  Choosing to be of service to others and to serve our Highest Good is something to joyfully celebrate.

Physical: Ocean Jasper is recommended when we are engaged in physical activities that require strength, stamina and/or flexibility.  It helps us to be patient with the process and to find a steady pace that will allow us to go the long haul.  It reminds us to take appropriate breaks to relax and allow our muscles time to recover and repair.  It is especially great for anyone that has committed to an exercise or training regiment who needs to stay dedicated after the initial enthusiasm has worn off. Ocean Jasper helps us to methodically do what is necessary and to keep the big picture in mind.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineralogy of Ocean Jasper

Ocean Jasper, Marovato, Mahajanga Province, Madagascar

Rock Type: Igneous Rock (Rhyolite)

Color: All colors
Luster: Vitreous
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Mohs’ Hardness: Varies
Density: Varies
Cleavage: None
Fracture: Varies
Fluorescence: Blueish-white (long and short wave)
Color of Streak: Varies
Chemical Composition: Varies

Location: The highly-colorful Ocean Jasper is found only in Madagascar.  But similar forms of Orbicular Jasper are found in Australia and the United States (California)

Mineral Family: Ocean Jasper is not a mineral, but rather a rock. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock!

Formation: Despite its name, Ocean Jasper is not actually a type of Jasper. It is a form of Rhyolite, a type of igneous rock. Rhyolite is a type of extrusive igneous rock, formed on the surface of the earth by molten magma due to a volcanic eruption. There are five types of igneous rocks created by lava: Basalt, Obsidian, Rhyolite, Trachyte, and Andesite. Other types of igneous rocks, such as Granite, are created by processes deep within the earth. Rhyolite is a relatively rare volcanic rock, almost exclusively found in the interiors of continents. Most Rhyolites are porphyritic and contain large Quartz crystals or other varieties of crystals in an extremely fine-grained matrix. This indicates that these crystals were already being formed before the lava flowed onto the surface. Ocean Jasper is a popular name given to multicolored spotted Rhyolite.

Mining: Mined at its primary deposit, usually found with Obsidian and Pumice.

Enhancements: All varieties of Rhyolite, including Ocean Jasper, are completely natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Ocean Jasper

The name “Jasper” is a generic name given to any spotted stone as well as most semi-transparent or opaque Chalcedony. As a result, it can be difficult to know exactly which stone is being referenced in ancient and medieval writings. Ocean Jasper is a type of multicolored Rhyolite whose specific healing energies have only recently been explored.

This Ocean Jasper was artisanally mined in Madagascar.  

The exact deposit is unknown, but most likely caused only minor environmental damage,

and would have been relatively low risk for miners.

Sourcing Relationship

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.

Again, I had a specific request and Julie worked really hard to accommodate my request. As I said in my previous review, Julie’s stones have amazing energy and I fully support her efforts to offer ethically sourced stones. I HIGHLY recommend Moonrise Crystals.
