History & Origin:

Bumblebee Jasper is a trade name used to describe a vibrant orange, yellow & black banded carbonate-rich rock from West Java, Indonesia. Despite its name, it is not actually Jasper, but instead a combination of minerals such as Calcite, Realgar, Orpiment, Pyrite & more. Discovered in the late 1990’s, it was given the name ‘Bumblebee’ due to its bee-like pattern & colour.
