This is an OCEAN JASPER crystal pyramid. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. It has been here charging with Synergy for 9+ years now and is finally ready to go out into the world.
It has intricate and interesting patterns visible from every angle. Including areas with a higher Agate content (blue-grey). Plus, a few VUGS here and there. Including one near the point on one side that is lined with deep green Druzy crystals! Vugs are natural formations, sometimes also known as "crystal cave inclusions", and considered highly collectible.
There are a few small organic spots here and there from inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. ALL formations present are 100% natural parts of the stone.
It weighs about 9.4oz and measures about 2 3/4" inches across each side of the base by about 2 1/4" inches tall. Code-052523-118
“Ocean Jasper” is a trade name. It is also known as "Orbicular Jasper", because it contains orbs/eyes/spots/spherical inclusions. It can contain inclusions of Quartz, Agate, Feldspar, and Jasper. The most recent research shows that it is actually a form of Chalcedony. Chalcedony (pronounced kal-sydney) is a variety of Quartz, and actually the “mother stone” of various other minerals - banded Chalcedony is known as Agate, black as Onyx, red as Carnelian, opaque green with red spots as Bloodstone, etc. Rough material of Ocean Jasper comes from one of two deposits on the northwest part of the island of Madagascar. They are approximately 10 miles apart. The Marovato deposit is on the coast, while the Kabamby deposit is further inland. As it is quite popular, there has been extensive mining and many of the veins end up “mined out.” So the material with the best and brightest colors is only really available if someone has old stock they've held onto. The early history of Ocean Jasper is still a bit of an unknown. Chalcedony deposits on Madagascar were mentioned in a 1922 publication, and some research shows that the Kabamby deposit may have been mined for a time and then forgotten about. But the earliest confirmed specimen was from an early Twentieth century collector in Germany, and the original receipt has a date of 1927. In 1977, a photo of Ocean Jasper was included in a French “Encyclopedia of Minerals” book. But it wasn't really found and mined again until late 1999. It debuted at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show (the largest in the world) in January of 2000. Due to its continued popularity, new veins of Ocean Jasper are still actively being searched for, but access to material remains limited.
Ocean Jasper is a very calming and soothing energy. It encourages the love of one's self and others, a healing of one's emotions and brings a sense of peace.
It is connectedness to nature and all of the earth and therefore is very attractive to the Devas (also known as Nature Spirits or fairy / faerie kingdom.)
It is used to encourage the acceptance of responsibility and it also is thought to help increase patience. Ocean jasper is a very protective stone, and the orbs or "eyes" found in the stone are considered to enhance this protective quality, especially in regard to what is called the ‘evil eye.’ It is one of the most protective stones in the Jasper family.
Ocean Jasper is used in some meditation techniques, such as gazing or scrying, especially if highly polished.
In Crystal Healing, it is thought to be useful removing toxins from the body and the aura, as well as with digestive problems.
Ocean Jasper is associated with the Heart Chakra, but can be used with all of the Chakras.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
Crystal skulls are tools of awareness and they can:

People have asked me about how I clear my stones. You can read my BLOG entries on this site about working with crystals and skulls for details. Every one of the skulls and stones that I list has been with Synergy and is fully charged with the energy - after all - that's the whole point of me offering them to the public!
