Ocean Jasper is an absolutely beautiful and quite hard to come by as it exclusively comes out of one region in Madagascar. Ocean Jasper is a form of what is known as “orbicular jasper;” coming in a wide variety of colors- particularly green, white yellow, or even less commonly pink and blue- it is characterized by its signature orbs that are dotted all throughout the stone. Ocean Jasper is a wonderful stone of the Solar Plexus and Heart chakras, bringing joy, optimism and loving kindness, and is even considered to be “the stone of happiness.” Being that this stone is so connected to the energy of the ocean, it purifies thoughts and emotions, and brings divine healing as well as prosperity to the bearer as well. Work with one of these beautiful Ocean Jasper stones to lift your mood when you’re in need, or carry one with you to step into more ease and more flow.

Once you receive your special package from Karma Cottage, we suggest you spend a little time with your stones in meditation, one at a time. Feel its energy. It’s okay to ask questions in meditation, like “Will you help me?” or to follow feelings that may arise. Are you getting a question asked of you? Are you feeling calm, energetic or neutral? Feel the shape, texture color and intensity of each stone. Is it soothing, disruptive or neutral? We all have times when we need soothing and times when we need a disruption.
Be open. Let the stone’s vibrations work for you, on you and through you. Enjoy the energy and be conscious of its nature. Every stone is an exceptional creation of the Earth. Treat it with reverence.
Karma Cottage wants to express our gratitude for allowing us to foster your little stone of the Earth.
