BLOODSTONE is a wonderful greenish-reddish crystal that reminds us of Mother Earth and connects our minds with nature. Bloodstone by its mineral compounds is Jasper, which means it’s a variety of Jasper. Another name for Bloodstone is Heliotrope that’s also well-known. The greenish colour of Bloodstone symbolises something earthly, healing, ancient knowledge and cleansing. The reddish hue in the crystal symbolises blood, our origins, survival skills and the needed power to achieve this all. Bloodstone is a very strong physical and spiritual protector.
Bloodstone is named after the Greek word"helios", which means sun and "trepein", which means to turn. To summarize, then the name of Bloodstone means the reflection of the Sun and this name was once given to Bloodstone as it reminded the colour play on the sea created by the Sun that created a reddish hue on the sea surface. From the beginning of times, Bloodstone is considered as a crystal that cleans energies and the body. That’s why it has been used as a body healer.
Bloodstone mostly comes from Australia, Czech Republic, Brazil, the USA, India, China and Russia. These are the countries where Bloodstone has been found the most, mined and also, today still available. Bloodstone has different varieties, for example, Bloodstone Seftonite and Dragon Bloodstone. The reddish spots in Bloodstone generally come from the Red Jasper, but, from time to time, these spots could be caused by other minerals. There are many different crystals together on Earth as they create themselves from each other and therefore this kind of mixing of minerals is possible.
