Description

Formed in Madagascar and South Africa, Kambaba Jasper is a sedimentary stone consisting of microcrystalline Quartz and a primordial form of blue-green algae – you may be familiar with these ancient fossils as they comprise the stone Stromatolite. Stromatolites are the oldest known fossils, and one of the earliest records of life on Earth. They date as far back as 3.8 Billion years ago. The Earth is thought to be 4.5 Billion years old, so the existence of life during this turbulent astronomical period is quite remarkable.

Kambaba Jasper was originally called Green Stromatolite Jasper and now goes by the trade name Kambaba or Crocodile Jasper. Only certain mines in Madagascar and South Africa source these beautiful and exotic Jaspers.

Kambaba Jasper is a stone of peace, tranquility, and fertility. It reminds us of the gift of life and our connection to all living things of the present, past & future. Rich in orbs and swirls of green and black, this stone is commonly used to aid in meditation. Known for providing peace and tranquility, Kambaba Jasper is said to remove blockages in the heart and base chakras to dispel worry and negativity, and allow a clear path for clarity and serenity to flow.
