Bloodstone is a green stone with red flecks. (However, sometimes these flecks may also be black, silver, yellow, and/or a different shade of green from the primary stone.) Bloodstone belongs to the chalcedony family, and is a quartzite. Bloodstone’s primary purpose is to eliminate fear and anger, allowing the wearer to experience raw courage. It opens blockages of the body, and cleanses all major organs. Excellent in the treatment of those with blood disorders and/or diseases. It is the favored stone of women with troubled pregnancies, or those with complications in labor. Bloodstone allows the wearer to unlock both the physical, and spiritual doorways. Thus, it is extremely effective in connecting, and communicating with one’s own blood ancestors.
