Natural Bumblebee Jasper Gemstone - Cabochon Freeform 27mm x 40mm Pkg - 1
Bumblebee Jasper has been known only since the late 1990s. It is named for its alternating yellow, orange, and black layers that resemble the coloration of certain bees. Bumblebee Jasper has been found only on the Indonesian island Java.
Bumblebee Jasper is not true jasper because it does not consist primarily of microcrystalline quartz. It is technically a sedimentary rock that contains varying amounts of sulfur and manganese oxides. It forms in volcanic fumarole environments and is a porous, layered, multicolored rock that is cemented together by carbonate minerals. Its yellow layers are due to sulfur, orange to arsenic sulfide minerals, and the black to manganese oxides. Bumblebee Jasper has a Mohs hardness of about 4.0.
Bumblebee Jasper is collected for its unusual formation, rarity, and wide variation in colors and patterns.
