Kambaba jasper also known as Kabamba is a unique and relatively rare stone from Madagascar. It features black swirling orb-like patterns against a backdrop of rich green colour. Mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting, this highly polished cabochon has a silky smooth texture and makes a wonderfully unique ladies pendant.
Kambaba is a rather complicated stone and one which has caused a great deal of confusion. After extensive research we have finally managed to get to the bottom of what kind of stone this is but it wasn't easy. Take a look at our article on Kambaba Jasper in the Articles and Photos section of our website. We hope you find it as interesting as we did.
There is a small firescale mark in the sterling silver setting of this pendant which can be seen in our second photo. These marks sometimes occur whilst the silver is being worked on at very high temperatures. For this reason this kambaba pendant has been slightly reduced.
