Bloodstone is an ancient gemstone renowned for its healing powers and protective qualities. Its name comes from the belief that this stone was formed from the blood of Christ during his crucifixion. The unique appearance is due to iron oxide impurities within its crystalline lattice structure which gives it its distinctive green color speckled with bright red dots resembling drops of blood.


Historically used as an amulet to protect against evil eye and threats, this stone has been revered across cultures including Ancient Greeks who believed it could turn invisible when needed. It gets its vibrant colors from mineral inclusions; chlorite particles provide the deep green base while iron oxides create vivid red flecks.


Its practical uses include being carved into seals and signet rings but metaphysically it's known as a 'Stone of Courage', providing emotional support during times of adversity. Wearing Bloodstone jewelry can help enhance your intuition while promoting love towards oneself & others.


Meditating with Bloodstone brings about tranquility & calmness whereas using them in crystal grids amplifies their power making them effective tools for protection rituals. Place one near your workspace or home entrance to ward off negative energies.


Proper care includes avoiding harsh chemicals & extreme temperature changes which may damage the stone’s surface. Gently clean with soapy water then pat dry after use.


Remember that each piece is unique carrying distinct patterns just like our individual life journeys!
