This large eye-catching nicely domed cab of brilliant orange, yellow, black and wispy whites is a great example of the perfectly named Bumble Bee Jasper from Indonesia, collected near the hot steaming calderas of an active volcano, giving an evocative image to the yellow-orange plumes in this cabochon. Dangerous to collect in its raw form and also to cut, I use protective gloves and a face mask to cut it as it contains arsenic. Safe to wear and touch in this highly polished state (the danger when cutting is the dust and material coming off the stone when cutting or grinding), it creates an appealing contrast in its design, and will definitely make a remarkable one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!
Bumble Bee Jasper Designer Cut Cabochon
45 x 27 x 6.1mm
I cut this cab by hand and it's been polished to a glossy polish both front and back with slightly rounded bottom edges and a slightly angled girdle for easy setting.
