PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Polychrome Jasper is a beautiful stone with a complex colour mix of greys, oranges, and sandy colours. Often called Desert or Picasso Jasper due to the stunning patterns and complex colours. It is believe to have been originally found as early as 2006 close to the Ocean Jasper deposits of Madagascar. The material is graded according to the complexity of patterns and colours. We only select from the top 20% of Polychrome material which is worked. Polychrome happens to be Nick May's favourite polished material.

Ocean Jasper has been around for several decades. The earliest material was more commonly referred to as Orbicular Ocean Jasper and was aptly named due to the complex circular patterns associated to this early material. Ocean Jasper is often showing a wide range of colours, from pink, blue, yellow, green and almost everything else in-between. However, the more “modern” deposits tend to have a lower diversity of colours and are dominated by banded patterns. Only a small % of material mined in the last decade has yielded traditional orbicular patterns. Those familiar with the “old school” material from many moons ago would likely consider modern material to be low quality. Toprock grading standards of Ocean Jasper are exceptionally high, as we have almost 3 decades of experience with the material. Nowadays, we only select the top 10 to 20% of polished material and every single batch is carefully graded and priced.
