This stone is a dark green coloured mineral with reddish-brown inclusions caused by impurities of iron oxides. Bloodstone takes on a high polish and is used for decorative purposes and for its healing properties.
In the first century AD bloodstone was claimed to preserve health and offer protection against deception. During the Middle Ages it was widely used for sculptures which depicted flogging, whipping, lashing and martyrdom. The red inclusions were likened to blood hence were associated with the blood of Christ. For this reason it was associated with the church and given religious importance.
Once used to prevent nosebleeds and as a remedy for haemorrhaging and inflammatory diseases, today bloodstone is still used for blood related disorders. It's considered to be an exceptionally powerful healing crystal suitable for complete revitalisation.
