Bumblebee Jasper from Indonesia Bumblebee Jasper (which is actually not a true Jasper) is a complex calcium carbonate mineral with inclusions of arsenic and manganese oxides. The banding and layering, which resembles a common bumblebee (hence the name), is caused by inclusions of sulfur (yellow), calcium & Aragonite (white), Orpiment & Realgar (orange), and Pyrite (black). This mineral was only recently discovered in the 1990’s in Papandayan Volcano, West Java Province, Indonesia. This is an extremely rare occurrence in nature that simply doesn’t happen and it should be cherished, respected, and valued for the true uniqueness it holds. Bumblebee Jasper is a stone of positivity and joy! It elevates moods, inspires us to open our hearts and infuses self-consciousness. Another good quality is the way it has a tendency to encourage to pursue our passion. Bumblebee Jasper enables us to embrace change, discover new opportunities and helps us find our sense of purpose through boosting our self-esteem. If you feel ungrounded this stone is perfect for balancing the spirit and grounding the physical and emotional body.
