This absolutely stunning oval cabochon is the closest thing you'll get to a bumblebee! The vivid waves of yellows and oranges create an ocean of fire--perfect for use in a necklace.
Shaped and polished with a flat reverse and a rounded obverse, this cabochon is beautifully smooth and ready for jewelry making.
Bumblebee jasper is a combination of volcanic matter, anhydrite, hematite, sulfur and arsenic. Despite its name, bumblebee jasper is technically a chalcedony and not a jasper because there is no quartz. This piece with the bright bands of yellow, orange, black and white is extremely unique. Java, Indonesia is the only known source of this mineral as it forms near active volcanoes.
