I went hunting for South African bloodstone in Tucson recently and found some great specimens! Now I am so excited to be able to offer these beautiful and rare tumbled stones. You know, I always love the link between gemstones,history and folklore. These blood jaspers – which originate in South Africa (as the name implies) are really some of the most intriguing stones in my collection. Bloodstone is a variety of deep-green chalcedony, a crypto-crystalline quartz, flecked with red jasper.
How to work with tumbled South African Bloodstone
Bloodstone is my go-to stone for healing of ANY kind. It heals muscle aches and injuries, increases circulation and blood flow, lowers blood pressure, eases trauma, brings closure and healing in emotional situations, brings relief from pain, and generally improves overall health. I offer it as stone medicine almost every day. Bloodstone is the lapidary bandaid! This gem is one that improves not only physical wellness, but also builds personal power. When feeling fearful or frail, bloodstone brings tenacity and strength. It gives us the confidence to face challenges, instills the courage to move forward, and carries an encouraging, comforting energy. Bloodstone draws energy through the base, or Root Chakra, filling us with greater determination. It will be your ally in difficult times, increasing your resilience and resolve.
