Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope, is composed of deep green Chalcedony (or Jasper) and small dots of Red Jasper (Red Jasper is red due to hematite/iron oxide inclusions). The number of red dots in bloodstone varies depending on the concentration of red minerals in the stone. It is an opaque stone with a shiny, glassy luster.

Bloodstone is a powerful healing stone used for thousands of years for its healing properties. It is often used to purify and detoxify the body.

Great at grounding negative energy and cleansing the body, Bloodstone brings love into any situation and helps ground the negative energies surrounding that issue. Bloodstone assists in enhancing the functions of the mind, bringing clarity and understanding to subjects that were unfamiliar.

Bloodstone has been used to increase energy and strength. It removes energy blockages, which in turn, creates a smooth and constant energy flow throughout the body.

Bloodstone can help to enhance intuition and creativity, and can be used to combat fatigue, irritability and confusion. It is good to keep a Bloodstone in any place that needs its energy cleansed.

Physically, Bloodstone is an energy cleanser, purifying the blood and detoxifying the liver, kidneys and spleen. It benefits all blood rich organs and regulates blood flow.  Bloodstone cleanses lower chakras, realigning the energies.

  Love this site but I believe the red inclusions are of hematite, not red jasper.  (Submitted by: Moonchild on June 01, 2019)
  @Moonchild Hematite is a metallic grey color. The red in bloodstone is definitely jasper. In fact, the green is jasper too, aka chalcedony. Perhaps you’re thinking of tiger iron, which has all three?  (Submitted by: Anomelie on February 02, 2020)
  Thanks for the info on bloodstone I needed that now I feel much better. Again Thanku!  (Submitted by: Daisy on July 11, 2018)
