Bumble Bee "Jasper" has been known only since the late 1990s.  It is named for its alternating yellow, orange, and black layers that resemble the coloration of bees.  Bumble Bee "Jasper" has been found only on the Indonesian island Java. It is not a true jasper because it does not consist primarily of microcrystalline quartz.  It is technically a sedimentary rock that contains varying amounts of sulfur, calcite, aragonite, and manganese. Metaphysically it is a stone to help you to accept change and find new opportunities.

Other cultures besides the Egyptians see meaning in the shape of the pyramid.  The shape itself is very strong, being primarily made of stable triangles, and it has itself become a symbol of stability.  An inverted pyramid symbolized spiritual development, as an individual became more aware of the broadness and fullness of life and spirituality.  Mathematicians and alchemists find significance in the ratios of the height to the base or the lengths of the diagonals, and they can use the pyramid to solve the problem of "squaring the circle."  Other people see the four sides as representing the four elements (wind, fire, air, and water) converging to a single point.
