BLOODSTONE a HERO’S stone. It can instill courage in dangerous situations (like everyday life) and protects us from our own dangerous inclinations and desires. Bloodstone is an intense healing stone, and has the ability to balance the base, navel, sacral, and heart chakras.

Bloodstone helps one see the benefits of change, and to recognize the benefit of “turmoil prior to perfection”. Sometimes you need to break something down, an old habit or pattern of behavior before it can be rebuilt in a healthier way.

The primary message of bloodstone is “Be Here Now!” It can revitalize love, relationships, and friendships. Helps to let go of selfish behavior and renews idealistic outlook on life. Also enhances one’s natural abilities, talent, and creativity.

Christians often used bloodstone to carve scenes of the crucifixion and martyrs, leading it to also be dubbed martyr’s stone.  The legend of the origin of bloodstone says that it was first formed when some drops of Christ’s blood fell and stained some jasper at the foot of the cross.

Archangel Raphael is the Archangel for those in need of healing, wholeness, and unity and he is affiliated with the colors green and deep pink.
