One thought on “Gemstone of the Day: Bloodstone

  1. Bloodstone: removes emotional blockages and limitations. A member of the Jasper family. An opaque stone of intense dark green with blood red or orange oxide spots, it is considered a semiprecious stone rather than a rock. Legends surround the bloodstone more than any other jasper. The earliest widely known legend of the Middle Ages states that the bloodstone was formed at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ when the blood of his wounds dropped on the dark green earth and turned to stone. From this legend comes the name bloodstone and the belief that the stone has exceptional wound healing powers.It’s tremendous therapeutic powers reportedly cleared bloodshot eyes, relieved sunstroke and headaches, and cured hemorrhage. As an amulet it’s used to prevent injury and disease. As an aid to circulation, the ancients dipped the stone in cold water and then placed in on the body. It is a powerful energy mover.
