Known and used for thousands of years, in the first century bloodstone was claimed to preserve health and offer protection from deception. During the Middle Ages it was used in sculptures which depicted flogging, whipping, lashing and martyrdom.
The red inclusions in bloodstone were once likened to blood hence were associated with the blood of Christ. For this reason it was popular with the church and given religious importance.
Historically bloodstone has been used to prevent nosebleeds and as a remedy for haemorrhaging and inflammatory diseases. Today it's still considered to be a powerful healer and is widely used for blood related issues and complete revitalisation.
These are currently the only two rough pieces of bloodstone that we have available.
