Bumblebee jasper is not a quartz-family stone; instead, it is Indonesian volcano lava and sediment that have been compacted to form a relatively soft stone with a Mohs hardness of 3-5. The unusual yellow-orange coloring is natural and the color is mixed with a dark matrix for a striking contrast. This 32" necklace of small 4mm rondelles combined with aventurine rectangles, hematite, pyrite and delicate Miyuki glass seedbeads can be worn long as a single strand necklace, doubled as a short 16" necklace, or wrapped multiple times as a bracelet. The necklace is fastened with a 14kt gold fill magnetic clasp which literally makes it a snap to change configurations.

Cost: $106.00 USD
