Bumblebee Jasper

The home of Blue John Jewellery

Found in the vents of volcanoes including those situated in Bali, this beautifully marked stone resembling lava like veins of blacks, oranges and yellows is known to local Indonesian craftsmen as “Batu Badar Blerang” which translates to Badar stone sulphur.


About Bumblebee Jasper

Characterised by its vivid markings this unusual stone is named rather obviously as it’s appearance and likening to that of a bumblebee.

Bumblebee Jasper is composed of various volcanic minerals including sulphur, anhydrite and hematite. It is believed to ease emotional stress, increasing one’s confidence and taking responsibility for one’s actions, accepting a change and giving a positive outlook. Also believed to help with allergies, abdominal issues, the nervous system, the heart and circulatory system disorders.


History of Bumblebee Jasper

During the 90s, bumblebee jasper first appeared in Java, Indonesia as Fumarole Jasper. It quickly became highly popular around the world for its enchanting swirls of distinct colours. It is collected by locals near hot vents of an active volcano called Mount Papandayan. The peak is around 8,700 feet high, which is one of the tallest volcanoes in Indonesia.


Pairing Bumblebee Jasper

With its unique swirls of yellow, orange and black colour bands, Bumblebee Jasper adds distinctive punctuation when paired with more neutral outfits and colours.
