Bloodstone. Typically 2.5cm - 4cm
Bloodstone, also known as heliotrope, is a variety of jasper, where the dark green colour of the stone is flecked or cut through with red. This gives the appearance of blood on a green surface, which is where it received its morbid name!
Each one has a unique pattern, and many include small deposits of other minerals too, meaning that some pieces of bloodstone are actually quite brightly and multi-coloured.
Bloodstone is the birthstone for March.
Information from the web:
This stone, which is associated with the root chakra, will assist in grounding you in the physical world, which relieves depression and anxiety and will keep you focussed on the “here and now,” and the “next steps” that you need to take in order to solve a problem.
It will encourage you to take action and give you the courage and personal strength to do so, if you feel apathetic, lethargic, or trapped in your own inability to take action.
It is a very strong stone of emotional support, so should definitely be integrated into your life in difficult or emotionally traumatic times. Its powers to relieve emotional turmoil should not be understated.
How Will Bloodstone Help You?
Bloodstone is one of the most useful stones that you can use when you are having emotional struggles.
While many other stones are highly beneficial when your life is okay but not great, bloodstone is one of the ones that can really pack a punch when life just seems terrible.
