Kambaba Jasper is an unmistakable stone that can only be found in Madagascar. Classified as a rock not a mineral, it's used primarily as a lapidary material and gemstones tend to be cut as cabochons.
Much of the information that's documented about Kambaba Jasper is geologically inaccurate and it's taken us many years of painstaking research to be able to establish exactly what type of stone this is. The reason for all the confusion is because as more articles are being written about lesser known rock and mineral varieties, more and more inaccurate information is also being circulated. Many of the "facts" which appear online about this stone have been copied from articles that have been written by other people and in many cases, those articles have also been copied. As budding authors change and paraphrase other peoples' work in order to give their article the appearance of being original, accuracy becomes lost and the process continually repeats itself. Although it took us some time, we did finally manage to discover the truth about this distinctive and unique type of rock.
Other names associated with Kambaba Jasper include Crocodile Jasper, Star Galaxy Jasper which is a trade name created by stone-cutters and wholesalers in India, Green Stromatolite Jasper which is believed to be a more accurate geological description and Nebula Stone which is a different material completely.
Kambaba Jasper is certainly a fascinating stone and one that has created an enormous amount of confusion.
