Description

Bumblebee Jasper Near Mt. Papandayan, West Java, Indonesia As pictured: Height: 37.5mm Width: 24mm Thickness: 6mm Type of Banded Calcite Contains Arsenic and Sulfur (the cause of yellow/orange color) Despite the beliefs of some, unless somehow ingesting or inhaling as dust or powder, this stone, in tumbled/solid form, is not dangerous during normal use, such as wearing in pendants/jewelry, however, designers may wish to cover or suspend the backside of the stone so it’s not worn directly against the skin, due to a slight chance that perspiration COULD POSSIBLY transfer very trace amounts of this stone’s arsenic content to the skin of it’s wearer, causing minor irritation.
