Bumblebee Jasper is a vibrant stone that is a combination of volcanic matter, anhydrite, sulfur and other minerals. In fact there is debate over whether Bumblebee Jasper is a jasper or an agate. Either way its colors are as striking as a the bumblebee for which it's named, and brings us to that same ability to build and manifest.

Each sacred prayer fan is handmade and just as no two feathers are alike so is every fan unique. Sacred prayer fans are a wonderful healing tool with a myriad of uses that can blend with any tradition or background.

Please note that all fans use domestic bird feathers, as it is illegal to sell or possess feathers from birds of prey.
