Appearances & Origins
First discovered in the 1990s near Mount Papandayan in West Java, Indonesia, this gorgeous stone presents with bands of bright yellow, orange and black, interspaced with paler lemons and shades of grey. It is very distinctive and eye-catching. It is formed in the cracks of land where steam and gas can escape and contains different types of minerals that give it its multicoloured appearance. In fact, when it was first found, it was named because of its similarity in appearance to jasper, but in fact it is not a type of jasper at all, but more a mix of minerals, predominantly calcite.
Chakras, Properties & Placement
Buzzing with energy, this incredible stone resonates with both the sacral and solar plexus chakras, thus stimulating both passion and purpose in your life.

There is no such thing as an impossible dream where Bumble Bee Jasper is concerned, you can make it happen. Forget your fear and insecurities and allow this stone to remind you that you can achieve what you set your mind to: with confidence and self-belief anything is possible. You need to put in the work to get there, and that means expending energy, so this high octane crystal will boost your drive when you need it the most.

Obviously, it is not always easy to remain upbeat throughout a long day, but Bumblebee Jasper can support you to remain positive and ride the daily stresses of life.
