Bumblebee Jasper - 4212s
Trade name for colorful fibrous calcite found at Mount Papandayan, West Java, Indonesia. The material is made of radially grown fibrous calcite with a distinctive yellow, orange, and black banding. Bumble Bee Jasper isn't truly a jasper stone but the name has stuck for a variety of reasons. The coloration of this Bumblebee stone comes from a combination of minerals and volcanic matter. Combining anhydrite, hematite, sulfur, and arsenic as well as other elements, the bumblebee jasper is actually an agate stone. The patterns are unique and ensure that no two stones are exactly alike, which make the bumble bee jasper a lovely stone to include in any jewelry setting.
The yellow hues found in the Bumble Bee Jasper come from the high sulfur content. Despite the beauty of this stone, it's recommended that you wash your hands after handling the Bumble Bee Jasper stone. Sulfur can be hazardous to your health, so this stone is best enjoyed from afar or in special jewelry that shields you from the exposure.
