Strength, Courage, Balance

The Stone of Courage
The Martyr's Gem

Bloodstone is a chalcedony quartz also known as Heliotrope. Bloodstone is a green jasper dotted with bright red spots of iron oxide. It was treasured in ancient times and long served as the birthstone for March. Bloodstone corresponds to the main Heart Chakra as well as the astrological signs Aries, Pisces, and Libra. Numerologically, Bloodstone vibrates to the numbers 4 and 6.

Metaphysical Properties
Bloodstone is a hero's stone. It can instill courage in dangerous situations (like everyday life) and protects us from our own dangerous desires.  In addition to instilling courage, bloodstone is an intense healing stone, balancing the base, navel, sacral, and heart chakras.

Bloodstone helps one see the benefit and patterns of change, and to recognize the benefit of  turmoil prior to perfection.  One must sometimes break down a pattern of behavior before it can be rebuilt in a healthier way.

The primary message of bloodstone is "Be Here Now!

It can revitalize love, relationships, and friendships.  Bloodstone can help us let go of selfish behavior and renew an idealistic outlook on life.  It also enhances ones natural abilities, talent, and  creativity.

Medieval Christians often used bloodstone to carve scenes of the crucifixion and martyrs, leading it to also be dubbed martyr's stone. The legend of the origin of bloodstone says that it was first formed when some drops of Christ's blood fell and stained some jasper at the foot of the cross. 

Physical Healing Properties of Bloodstone:
Bloodstone purifies blood and detoxes liver, kidneys and spleen.  It regulates blood flow and benefits all blood rich organs in the lower body.


Bloodstone imparts strength, courage, and the self confidence needed to succeed in business and legal affairs. It is a stone that may be used to attract wealth, sexual potency, and to insure victory.

Be Here Now...!

I Am You Are And Love IS...!

Love IS Bliss
