The Magnificent Bloodstone Crystal

 

In ancient times the Bloodstone (Heliotrope) was considered to be the most beautiful of the Jaspers, a deep, earthy green gem invigorated with spots of brilliant red. It was known by the term Sun Stone, and later Christ’s Stone, its abundant energy holds the purity of blood and conveys the essence of life and birth, vitality and strength, passion and courage.

It is a magnificent stone with many wonderful, diverse and healing properties such as:

  • Purifying, and detoxifying
  • Grounding negative energy
  • Cleansing the body
  • Brings love into any situation
  • Heightens intuition and creativity – a must have stone for writers, artists and creatives!

A magical and mystical talisman with protective and nurturing qualities known to stimulate vitality, passion and courage.

As I mentioned before it is the most beautiful of the Jaspers, (a variety of quartz.) Due to its predominantly green colouration it represents the green energy of the earth, honouring Mother Earth, Gaia. With the addition of the bright red spots of red energy there is an abundance of passion, energy and motivation in this wonderful stone.

With such fantastic attributes and healing qualities it is no wonder that the Bloodstone plays a central part in my debut novel – The Curse of Time, Book 1 – Bloodstone, a YA fantasy set in Cambridge, UK.

    1. Hi, Micki. I love my rose quartz! A dear friend advised me to place a piece of rose quartz in every room of my house. I’ve done that. The crystals have a way of protecting you while at the same time opening your heart to love. A great combination. We are having fun exploring all kinds of fun things. ❤
