Bumblebee Jasper is actually not a Jasper at all as it contains no Quartz; Bumblebee Jasper is the trade name for a radially grown fibrous calcite found in Indonesia that has distinctive yellow, orange, and black banding. The yellow and orange coloring comes from finely dispersed realgar (an arsenic sulfide mineral), and the black is caused by pyrite.
This Cabochon has one fantastic appearance shaped and polished into a wide bottom teardrop, showing off the distinct and vibrant yellow/orange coloring against the black and grey that the Bumblebee Jasper is known for. The front has a slight cabochon curve, and the back is cut flat so it would fit very nicely set into a variety of settings.
Bumblebee Jasper has some very interesting beliefs surrounding it, one unique belief is that Bumblebee Jasper is great for encouraging healthy friendships, and helping ease feelings of jealousy. Thought to be a stone of understanding, it is believed to aid in relieving an emotionally burdened heart.
