This weeks crystal post is Bumblebee Jasper. It is, in fact, not a jasper at all because it contains no quartz. Some think it’s more of an Agate by the way it forms in layers. This crystal was discovered in the late 1990’s and is only found on the island of Java. It forms in pockets as a result of volcanic activity. The coloring is a mixture of yellow, orange, black and grey banding which gives this its unique name. The chakras Bumblebee Jasper work well with are the Sacral and Solar Plexus. Being called a Jasper, you’d expect it to be quite hard, but that isn’t the case. On the Mohs scale it is a 4.
Most pieces are coated with a resin to help maintain the crystals structure and to protect the user. Bumblebee jasper is a combination of Anhydrite, Hematite, Sulfer and Arcenic. The Sulfer and Arcenic give it the stunning yellow/orange color but they are both toxic. Coated for protection or not, it would be a good idea to wash your hands after holding this crystal. Especially if it is in raw form.
Working with the Sacral and Solar Plexus makes this crystal all about confidence and creativity. Some of the properites it has to share are:
- It increases self-esteem.
- It increases creativity.
- It helps you embrace your personal power.
- It helps you accept change and make necessary decisions to make it happen.
- It helps you find new opportunities.
- It helps releave the symptoms of allergies.
- It is said to help liver, spleen and pancreas funtion.
- It is said to help improve the function of the nervous system, the heart and the circulatory systems.
I hope you found this introduction to Bumblebee Jasper interesting. If it seems like a crystal you would like to work with, I encourage you to acquire a piece and give it a try. I am sure you will love it as much as I do. Remember that crystals and minerals were given to the Earth to enhance our lives. I am in no way suggesting anyone leave allopathic medicine. Rather the purpose of these weekly articles is to offer alternative options to enhance your lives and wellbeing.
