Bumblebee Jasper

Geological Information

Bumblebee jasper is a type of volcanic rock that is found in Indonesia.

It is known for its vibrant yellow, orange, and black colours, which resemble the markings of a bumblebee.

It is also known as "songe" or "songea" jasper.

However, it is important to note that bumblebee jasper is not a true jasper, as it is made up of several different minerals, including sulfur, hematite, and arsenic.

Due to the high levels of arsenic, it is not recommended to handle or inhale bumblebee jasper dust.

Historical Information

Bumblebee jasper, also known as volcanic or fishtail jasper, is a relatively new gemstone discovered in Indonesia in the late 1990s.

Metaphysical Information

It is believed to help with manifestation, creativity, and courage.

Some people also use it for spiritual purposes, such as connecting with higher realms and accessing spiritual guidance.

Bumblebee jasper is said to stimulate the sacral and solar plexus chakras, which can help with emotional balance, self-confidence, and personal power.
