Collection: Bloodstone

Bloodstone is a dark green stone that includes splashes of red. It is primarily found in Australia, Brazil, China, India, the Czech Republic, and the USA.

There are several legends about how Bloodstone got its name, most of them relating to the death of Christ, when spots of blood from His wounds fell onto the dark green earth, or onto Green Jasper lying on the ground.  

In ancient times the stone was called Heliotrope (derived from the Greek words for “Sun-Turner”) and you may still hear the name today. It has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs, and was worn by Roman and Greek soldiers as a talisman to protect them in battle and to stem bleeding from wounds that they received.

It has been used for healing for over 5,000 years. In ancient Mesopotamia, Bloodstone was dipped in cold water and placed on the body to aid circulation. It was thought to transfer the power of the sun to prevent disease and cure wounds.

Bloodstone was considered a talisman of good health and long life, but was also thought to bring respect, good fortune, riches, and fame to its owner. It was considered an “audible oracle” that gave off sounds to warn of danger. 

Bloodstone is a powerful healing stone and is known as a stone of courage. It is a very grounding stone, helping you build strength, determination, and courage, while cleansing the body of negative energy.

The red and green in Bloodstone help to strengthen the Root and the Heart Chakras, aligning the lower chakras with the Heart, and promoting a smooth energy flow throughout the body.

When the Root Chakra is out of balance, you may feel symptoms of lethargy, fatigue and low enthusiasm. The red crystal energy in Bloodstone helps to clear blockages and re-balance the Base Chakra.

The Heart Chakra regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we accept and what we resist. When the Heart Chakra is out of balance we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship, and become hypercritical of others. The green crystal energy in Bloodstone helps to clear and align the Heart Chakra.

Bloodstone helps to enhance intuition and creativity, and has a way of encouraging altruism.

It is a great protective stone against threats or bullying, whether verbal or physical. It is thought that attaching or sewing a small Bloodstone in the pocket of a child or teenager who is being bullied will help guide them on the best course of action: whether to withdraw or confront the situation.

Wearing or carrying Bloodstone helps increase mental clarity and helps when making decisions; it instills a sense of courage to take the right action. If you suffer from aggression or anger, wearing or carrying Bloodstone can help increase joy for life. It helps to combat fatigue, irritability and confusion.

Bloodstone helps boost motivation when necessary, and is a wonderful stone for increasing creativity.

Bloodstone can be a powerful support crystal if you are going through difficult circumstances. Its energy gives you the confidence to take action, and helps you stay focused and not become discouraged by obstacles. It can help generate a sense of calm, so providing emotional support during such times of adversity, and helping you regain your personal power.

Those born under this sign are pioneers that are open to new ideas and challenges. They are often brave leaders with a genuine concern for those they lead.

Bloodstone used in jewelry may be coated with polish that magnifies the gemstone’s beauty. This also means to never apply harsh chemicals like detergents when cleaning bloodstone jewelry as it ruins the surface.
