Kambaba Jasper – (Root & Heart Chakra)
I have been utterly fascinated with this stone since I discovered it a few years ago. There is something about Kambaba that makes me feel like I’m deep in a forest when I hold it. I am very much an Earth Element person, so it is incredibly comforting to me. In fact, this is one of my Guardian Gemstones for 2019. If you’d like to know more about Guardian Gemstones, Click Here.
Science – Kambaba Jasper is sometimes known as Crocodile Jasper because of its green, scaly look. There is ongoing debate about whether this stone is in the Jasper family, or is a Stromatolite. Stromatolites are fossil rocks, and a strong theory is that Kambaba Jasper is a form of fossilized blue green algae.
Historical Significance – Kambaba has been for quite some time, but has called so many different names (Crocodile Jasper, Crocodile Stone, Green Stromatolite, Stromatolite Jasper, Kambaba Stone ) it is hard to determine a specific discovery date. It does come from Madagascar. It has become fairly popular within the last decade when it was marketed as Kambaba Jasper.

The beautiful circles and swirls on the stones represent the natural cycles of life.
