The beauty of the slices is that they offer a choice: one side is polished to a mirror-like sheen, revealing the colour and beauty within; the side other is rough and is exactly as it came to light during the extraction process. This side shows the exterior nooks, crannies and nodules, each of which have a hidden beauty beneath their less attractive, yet fascinating, shape and form. Very much a definition of the human condition! Ocean jasper has a lovely soft energy, very Earth energy based, but it can also be very watery and floaty. Accordingly it can be useful in bringing about balance and gentle cleansing and healing on many levels, whilst enabling one to remain centred and grounded in the process. We have also found it helps connect to the water elementals (the undines) and the creatures of the sea, especially the cetaceans, and to understanding humanity's role in bringing about balance for the planet on land AND sea.
