Highly polished bloodstone tumbled stones imported by Stone Mania from South Africa.
Also known as heliotrope, bloodstone is a dark green variety of the mineral chalcedony that features small amounts of red colouration caused by traces of iron. In the first century it was claimed to preserve health and offer protection from deception and during the Middle Ages bloodstone was widely used in sculptures which depicted flogging, whipping, lashing and martyrdom. The inclusions of iron were once likened to blood hence were associated with the blood of Christ. For this reason it was often associated with the church and was given religious importance.
Whilst bloodstone was once used to prevent nosebleeds and as a remedy for haemorrhaging and inflammatory related diseases, today in crystal healing it's looked upon as a powerful healer that's often used for blood related disorders and complete revitalisation.
