Medium Tumbled African Bloodstone
These stones are one of the more unique varieties of Bloodstone we’ve carried at Crystal Life. These high grade pieces of Tumbled African Bloodstone are medium sized measuring between 5/8″ and 7/8″ in length. While most Bloodstone is made up of a mix of Jasper and Chalcedony, these stones are predominantly Chalcedony based giving them a high degree of transparency often not seen in Bloodstone.
Bloodstone has been a vital stone in the history of human beings for centuries. Mined for over 5,000 years, Bloodstone has been prized as jewelry, cups, insignias, as a talisman, and for its “magical” properties. At one time in history, Bloodstone’s magical properties included invisibility, healing a nosebleed, controlling the weather, and preserving health and youth.
Bloodstone is known as the hero’s stone, as heliotrope, and blood jasper. This multi-colored stone helps you recognize the benefit of turmoil prior to renewal. Bloodstone is known to help with courage and encourages you not to be selfish. It helps to calm your mind so you can make better decisions.

Bloodstone is also Known as Heliotrope. It is classified as a quartz based gemstone that is either opaque, in which case its referred to as a jasper or when translucent a chalcedony.

Tumbled African Bloodstone Care
All gemstones are unique and special. Variation in color and inclusions are natural and to be expected. We have selected all of our stones for their high vibration and quality. Bathe in full moonlight regularly to energize crystals. Cleanse regularly by placing on a piece of selenite or by moving through the smoke of sage. These stones can be gently washed with soap and water if necessary.
