Description

The Ocean Jasper deposit, even though it was found only a few years ago, is nearly gone and the material is becoming hard to find. The deposit formed as a Rhyolite flow but has been completely silicified. The Rhyolitic eyes or orbs come in an astonishing array of colors and color combinations. The back ground can be white, pink, green, red, or yellow. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common. This deposit was discovered at the edge of the ocean. It can only be seen and collected at low tide. The area has no road so the material must be transported to civilization by boat. Several other types of jasper are found in that area now but the orbicular Jasper is gone.
