Bumblebee Jasper is actually not a true Jasper at all as it doesn't contain Quartz, rather it is a form of fibrous calcite. It comes from only one location in the world, Mount Papandayan in West Java in Indonesia. Bumblebee Jasper contains realgar, which is an arsenic containing mineral that gives it the distinctive yellow orange colour, however as a component of Bumblebee Jasper Mindat does not note any dangers from handling or wearing this crystal.
