Bumblebee Jasper is a combination of volcanic matter — sulfur, manganese oxide, realgar and orpiment (arsenic-sulfide minerals), and calcium carbonate — which gives it a strikingly beautiful pattern of colors... and also makes it a fairly rare material.
That’s because the most common deposits of Bumblebee current sit among an active volcano. Because of the dangers involved with an active site, no mining is currently allowed.
Raw Bumblebee Jasper is toxic — thanks to its presence of arsenic-included orpiment. The tumbled stones in this listing are finished with a polish that decreases, and most often eliminates, any potential exposure.
Still, you can still own raw Bumblebee Jasper as long as you remember to wash your hands after handling the piece.
Bumblebee Jasper strongly stimulates the sacral and solar plexus chakras and frees any blocked energies in these areas so that one may fully manifest the things they feel a calling to do.
These stones also increase the active neurons in the gut, allowing one to closely attune their instincts.
The name Jasper means "Spotted or speckled stone" and is derived from the Old French term jaspre. Jasper is known to have been a favorite gem in the ancient world; its name can be traced back in Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, Assyrian, Greek and Latin. On Minoan Crete, jasper was carved to produce seals circa 1800 BC, as evidenced by archaeological recoveries at the palace of Knossos.
