1 Bloodstone Tumbled Stone - Quality A
Bloodstone is an attractive stone with a rich history and many holistic properties. Aside from being a gemstone associated with March birthdays, it’s a beautiful inclusion in jewelry pieces. It is easy to spot due to its dark base and red speckles. These red spots resemble blood, which is where the stone gets its name.
In the 4th century, Damigeron (a famed writer who focused on stones) wrote that Bloodstone was used for magical purposes, including the abilities to create weather, preserve youth and cause solar eclipses. This source of superstition dates back to the time of Pliny, who wrote that magicians would use this stone to turn invisible, and this power is later referred to by the Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio in his famous work “The Decameron.”
Bloodstone is an intense "healing stone" used to cleanse and realign the lower chakras with the heart. It is conducive to balancing the total body in order to assist with distress or anxiety associated with the re-alignment of these energies. Bloodstone is particularly stimulating to the Root and Heart Chakras.
