There was a time when Bloodstone (Heliotrope) was considered the highest & most valued of Jaspers (but it is really a green Chalcedony with red inclusions of jasper) a deep, earthy green gem with spots of bright red. Called the Sun Stone, and later Christ’s Stone, its energy carries the purity of blood and inherently speaks of life and birth, vitality and strength, passion and courage. As a talisman it is both mystical and magical, and its virtues are protective and nurturing. It’s name (Heliotrope) means ‘to attract the sun’. Hold it up to the sun or emerge it in open water to draw the power of the blood red sun. When using Bloodstone for healing, dip in cold water and then place it on several areas of the body, it will aid in the detoxification of the organs and blood. Also a treasured stone of warriors because it was known to have a blood stopping and wound healing property. Ground, powdered, and mixed with honey, it was used to cure tumors, draw out snake venom and staunch hemorrhages. It was said to clear putrefaction of abscesses in a day, and simply looking at the Blood Stone was believed to prevent eye diseases. Give as a gift to someone you intend to marry to bind ties. The Talisman of good health and long life. So many legends and deep seeded lore exist around this stone. It is even just mystifying being in it’s presence. #EarthMedicine #Healer #SunLore #Bloodstone #Talisman #bloodTies #Earth #HigherVibration #LightWorker
