Bloodstone Gem Rock CrystalsByname
Bloodstone is a dark green variety of chalcedony decorated in red. It is a stone that has been known among the people for two thousand years. Early eighteenth-century European writers referred to it as the "heliotrope" in their works. It is a combination of chalcedony and jasper. Bloodstones can be found in many saturated colors, including yellow, warm gray, and deep brown.
The legend of this stone dates back to the Middle Ages when the blood from the wounds of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ fell on the dark green earth and turned into a stone. This is believed to be a bloodstone. They also believe that it is most benevolent to those who wear or carry it. Many crystal healers use bloodstone to purify the blood and detoxify the liver, spleen, and kidneys. In addition, it is believed to prevent eye diseases.
