Showing all 13 results

Bumblebee Jasper is a vibrant and eye-catching gemstone known for its striking yellow, orange, and black banding, resembling the colors of a bumblebee hence its name. However, it’s worth noting that Bumblebee Jasper is not actually a true jasper but rather a mix of various minerals, primarily sulfur, arsenic, and manganese oxides, along with other minerals like hematite and anhydrite. It is formed in volcanic environments, often found near fumaroles, where hot gases interact with sedimentary rocks.

This unique stone is primarily sourced from Indonesia, particularly from the island of Java. Due to its vivid colors and intricate patterns, Bumblebee Jasper is highly sought after for jewelry making and lapidary purposes. It is often crafted into cabochons for pendants, rings, and earrings.

However, it’s important to handle Bumblebee Jasper with caution due to its composition. The presence of sulfur and arsenic in the stone can make it potentially toxic if ingested or if its dust is inhaled during cutting and polishing processes. Therefore, it is recommended to take necessary precautions when working with this gemstone.

Metaphysically, Bumblebee Jasper is believed to possess energizing and stimulating properties, promoting confidence, creativity, and vitality. It is said to resonate with the solar plexus chakra, aiding in self-expression and overcoming obstacles. As with many gemstones, beliefs about its metaphysical properties vary, and scientific evidence supporting these claims is lacking.
