Question: Is Bumblebee Jasper safe to handle?
Thanks for reaching out to Healing Crystals. Bumblebee jasper is indeed on the "toxic" list because it contains sulfur and arsenic. Tumbled bumblebee jasper is safer to handle than raw, but it's best to always limit your exposure to "toxic" crystals and to always wash your hands after handling them. Most of these crystals are completely safe to use or even wear as jewelry because the levels of these toxic chemicals/elements are quite insignificant. The danger would come more from if you were drilling into them or carving them and inhaling the dust or if you were going to use these to make an elixir, which I would not suggest for any crystal on the toxic list. It will be completely up to you if you feel comfortable making these necklaces. Maybe just inform you clients of the hazard and let them know safe handling methods. I do not think it's something anyone needs to be fearful about so long as they follow these safe handling guidelines.
I hope this answers your question and please don't hesitate to reach out if we can be of further assistance!
