Bloodstone is one of the most purifying and healing stones to work with; a powerful metaphysical tool that has been used throughout human history. It cleanses the area where it inhabits, and it has been used for thousands of years as a stone for strength and energy. The “origin” story for bloodstone is really powerful: it is said that green jasper lay at the feet of Jesus when he was on the cross; his blood dripped down to the stone below and created bloodstone. Bloodstone is actually a form of chalcedony, and is also known as heliotrope.
Some people use bloodstone as an aid for disorders of the blood or similar physical ailments, such as detoxifying the liver and kidneys. Metaphysically, bloodstone is purifying, detoxifying in an energetic sense, and brings love into any situation. It removes energy blockages and encourages a smooth and continual flow of positive energy. Bloodstone helps reduce harsh tempers, irritability and aggression. It’s grounding and protective, and encourages selflessness and acts of charity. It’s a wonderful stone to keep around for cleansing of all kinds, and facilitating understanding and clarity to things that were once unsure or unfamiliar.
The hexagon represents some of the most powerful sacred geometry. Did you know that honeybees create their homes – honeycomb – in perfect hexagonal shapes? Within these cells, they store food, raise their young, and care for the queen. While it is found throughout nature, in spiritual practice and religious ritual, the hexagon represents harmony and balance. It is at the center of the Star of David; is found in the structure of our DNA, and reverberates through time, history, and our physical plane, as the foundation of life itself.
In bloodstone form, these crystals are immensely healing to physical bodies, and the wounds we carry through time.
This listing is for ONE (1) cut and faceted Bloodstone JEWEL like those from the lot pictured. Each one measures approximately 1.5 inches at the widest point and were mined, and carved ethically in India for the Crystal Lion shop.
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. Please remember that all monitors and screens pick up colors differently. My photos are ALWAYS taken in natural sunlight and are NEVER enhanced. Each one is unique and one of a kind. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth. 🙂
