This is a cabochon of old stock Ocean Jasper. Before the mine was depleted ocean jasper was collected by hand, only at low tide, off the northwest coast of Madagascar. Now it can only be obtained from coveted private collections.
Gorgeous, rich coloring topped by an open cave of druzy makes for an eye catching gem.
