Kambaba Jasper Pendant
Kambaba Jasper pendant crafted for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting. This finely cut cabochon exhibits wonderful swirling patterns and the colours which are traditional of this gemstone variety, have a very slightly sandblasted appearance. It has been added to the Bargain Basement because the round gemstone is not perfectly circular. When the pendant is examined closely the bale at the top appears to be very slightly off centre but that's due to the shape of the stone and not an error in the way the pendant was crafted. Having said that you'll need to have a very keen eye for detail to even notice it.
Kambaba Jasper is a relatively rare type of rock that comes exclusively from Madagascar. Its geological make-up stems from a stromatolite which is a rock-like structure that forms in shallow seas and is built up from bacteria which has gradually over many years, been replaced by silica. Some of these fossils are said to date back around three billion years and for this reason, in crystal healing Kambaba Jasper is said to be a deeply earthing stone which harmonises its wearer to the natural cycles of the earth.
