Kambaba Jasper Pendant
Elegant Kambaba Jasper pendant crafted for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting. Although colour and markings in this distinctive gemstone variety vary very little, it's a stone that we love to choose for our collection because no two pieces are ever the same. One of a small number of rocks and minerals that can only be found in Madagascar, Kambaba Stone which some argue would be a more appropriate name is used primarily for lapidary purposes and in particular for gemstones. Its colour makes it a popular choice for winter and autumnal jewellery but it's also highly sought after by mineral enthusiasts.
Kambaba Jasper often exhibits swirling orb-like patterns and shades of colour can be rich or slightly faded as is the case with this piece. Its subtle sandblasted appearance is exactly what caught our attention and the exemplary polish also makes it incredibly tactile.
The geological make-up of Kambaba Jasper 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is a rock-like structure that forms in shallow seas and is built up from bacteria which has gradually over many years, been replaced by silica.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.
This hand crafted Kambaba Jasper pendant is a lovely piece of jewellery which is sure to enjoy plenty of wear.
