About Me (Webmaster/Author, Susanne Lomatch):

I have a research background in physics and engineering. I started collecting 'Ocean Jasper' almost 5 years ago. In early 2018, I realized that I should have been buying collector grade slabs and high quality old stock rough during those 5 years. I decided at the same time that there simply is not enough research out there on this material, and that not enough preservation of large-scale specimens was being done so that future researchers and mineral enthusiasts could study this amazing (and now depleted) material. I am presently working to build a collection for complete research study, and to encourage others to support preservation and study of this material over further processing loss. To that end, I have created this site and I have written much of the information and research content posted. I am also author of the published book, "Ocean Jasper: A Natural Wonder and a Geological Mystery".
