Ocean Jasper is only found on the north west corner of Madagascar. It is called
Ocean Jasper because the deposits are part of the coastline, and can only be reached by boat, and removed only during low tide. This stone is immediately recognizable by its concentric rings of color, earning at the name “Orbicular Ocean Jasper.” The most common colors are greens and whites, with the less common colors of pinks and yellows also appearing in some specimens.
In 2006 the last specimen from the deposit was mined. The deposit was followed from the beach into the side of the hill for about 40 meters. As the deposit was followed it became a large tube like formation, extending straight into the host rock. The jasper deposit became thinner as work progressed. The mine is now depleted. The search for new deposits is on going but nothing has been found.
