This listing is for 1 Natural Indonesian BUMBLEBEE JASPER Large Focal Rectangle Bead Pendant. It is drilled through the top. This listing is for the exact stone shown in the photo.

Approx. weight 0.3 ozs = 42.52 carats & size 17x48x4 mm-thick.

This example is opaque black at one side, translucent yellow at the other, with a striking band of brilliant banded yellow lace down the center. The bright yellow area has a velvety quality that's quite fascinating, making this very special stuff with great designer potential! a bold designer shape, and a smooth glassy polish both front and back.This is definitely a limited source material.

This astonishing stone is a relatively recent discovery, and has already made a splash on the international mineral scene for its incredibly vibrant, almost neon colors. Known as Bumblebee Jasper, or sometimes Bumblebee Agate, it is formed around sulfurous volcanic fumaroles in one small area of West Java, on the Mount Papandyan volcano. Entirely submerged during the rainy season, the cemented volcanic ash solidifies in a hydrothermal environment to create this astonishing fusion of anhydrite (gypsum), native sulfur, hematite, arsenic sulphide, and possibly plumose calcite, cinnabar (mercury sulphide) and ilmenite, and the striking bull's-eyes appear to be aragonite crystals overlaid with sulfur/orpiment layers.
