Bumblebee Jasper is actually not technically a Jasper since it contains no Quartz at all! 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 pendant is one truly remarkable specimen of Bumblebee Jasper with alternating swirling patterns from black to grey alongside incredibly vibrant yellow to orange. The closer you look at this piece the more natural detail stands out, with an entire world of character to explore within!
