Ocean Jasper is famous for its unpredictable color swirls and color patterns, particularly the many small orbs in its matrix, which appear as circles or eyes on cut sections. It is this dance of coloration that attracts collectors to this popular gemstone. Our Ocean Jasper features shades of blue teal, rust, and gold over soft cream and gray.
