Bloodstone is also known as Heliotrope and is a variety of quartz which occurs in massive formations. The colour is green with flecks of red; in smaller pieces of the mineral, the red does not appear.
This mineral is an intense healing stone and a “stone of courage”. It can be used to awaken and to introduce uniformity within the vibrations of energy in the base, naval, sacral, and heart chakras. It helps one to accept the change in energy fields, and to recognize the beneficial aspects of turmoil prior to perfection.
It also provides one with the centering and grounding energy of the heart, and is conductive to balancing the total body in order to help one to overcome any distress and anxiety which is associated with the re-alignment of the energies.
