Bumblebee Jasper is the trade name for the brilliant yellow fibrous Calcite that comes from Mount Papandayan, West Java, Indonesia. Found only at Mount Papandayan, Bumblebee Jasper is born of a unique combination of geological and weather events that occur here. Discovered in 1990, this striking mineral combination consists of Calcite and a mixture of Hematite, Pyrite and other volcanic material. In 2017, it was confirmed that the orange color is caused by Realgar. Since it contains little to no Quartz, Bumblebee Jasper is actually not a Jasper at all, but instead a fibrous Calcite with a unique mixture of volcanic minerals.
Bumblebee Jasper embodies the volcanic force and life-giving rains that spurred its creation. Found only in one place on Earth, this specialized stone offers a unique mixture of elemental and energetic properties. Born of Fire & Water, Bumblebee Jasper is a smoky, stormy bundle of energies that ignite creativity and curiosity. It has an artistic, elegant quality that reveals the beautiful order behind seeming chaos. A stone of the imagination and motivation, Bumblebee Jasper bridges the gap between our dreams and reality. It is a ‘do-er’ stone, inspiring us to take action and trust the process. Its strong yellow and orange coloring resonates with the Solar Plexus chakra, targeting will power and confidence.
