This sterling silver cuff is a cast made by a local silversmith and close company friend. The recessed triangular-stamped pattern contrast wonderfully with the natural waves in the stone. The coarse finish on this cuff really adds to the dimension of the piece.
Stone: Bumblebee Jasper (1.22 x 0.92 in.)

Metal: Sterling Silver
Bumblebee Jasper, surprisingly, is not a true jasper. While jasper is a variety of quartz, this mineral is a calcium carbonate mineral with inclusions of manganese and arsenic. Recently discovered in the 1990s, this banded yellow mineral is a misnomer. The colors seen are caused by iron pyrite (black), sulfur (yellow), calcium (white), and sometimes realgar (orange). This mineral has only been discovered in one place on Earth, Papandayan Volcano, West Java Province, Indonesia.
Bumblebee Jasper is a stone of creativity and joy. It aids in the manifestation of your higher good while increasing motivation.
Chemical Formula: CaCO3
Commonly found in Indonesia.
