Kambaba Jasper: Restoring Emotional Balance

Kambaba jasper is a beautiful stone that features swirling patterns of black circles and ovals on a green background. It was named for the area of Madagascar where it was discovered, in the west central Bongolava region. Even though it commonly referred to as “jasper” in the industry, this stone isn’t a variety of jasper, at all.

Confusion and Misinformation about Kambaba Jasper

Many websites state that Kambaba jasper is sedimentary in origin, and that it is a fossil stromatolite, containing the impressions of ancient algae colonies.  This is incorrect.  
An analysis conducted by the Institut Für Edelstein Prüfung in Germany indicates that Kambaba “jasper” is a special type of rhyolite that is volcanic in origin. It contains quartz, aegirine, feldspar, and trace amounts of calcite. The circular patterns are caused by very small amphibole needles.

Kambaba jasper is also sometimes confused with Nebula Stone, which was discovered in Mexico in 1995. Although their appearance is similar, nebula stone has a slightly different mineral composition. It is a mix of zircon, aegirine, acmite, riebeckite, anorthoclase, and quartz. Nebula stone also has a black body color with green circles and patterns on it. The body color of Kambaba jasper is primarily green.

Other trade names for Kambaba jasper are crocodile jasper, crocodile rock, cambamba, kambamba, amphibianite, and eldarite.
