Bumble Bee

Bumble Bee Gemstone – With its distinctive yellow, orange, and black banding, it’s very easy to see how Bumble Bee Jasper earned its moniker. The best examples of this stone feature a high contrast between layers of banding. Formed as cabochons for jewelry, occasionally, they may also be fashioned into ornamental objects. Obtaining specimens bearing a consistent look is tough.

Though traded as jasper, this gemstone is a calcium carbonate. Jaspers are heavily composed of quartz, and this gem contains very little. The material is soft and easily polished. It is treated with resin to improve its hardness and durability.
