Bloodstone (heliotrope) is an alternate birthstone for March and is associated with the base or root chakra. It is a green jasper with streaks and puddles of red iron oxide in it that looks like blood, hence the name.
In ancient Greece, it was associated with the vitality of life because it appeared to actually have blood within it. The blood colour that ran through it represented its power as a living thing in Greek natural philosophy.
Later, Medieval Christian lore said that this stone was formed at the site of the Crucifixion, when Christ’s blood fell on a piece of green jasper that lay at the foot of the cross. It became a great stone for representing sacrifice, and was worn as a symbol of piety and a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice.
Bloodstone is also a very protective stone, and is especially useful if you are being threatened. Whether with physical violence or just a negative person in your life, bloodstone can create a psychic barrier between yourself and the threat. It gives you the insight to tell when to retreat and when to confront the danger, and strength and courage to work through whatever decision you make. It is a very strong stone of emotional support, so should definitely be integrated into your life in difficult or emotionally traumatic times.
Bloodstone is best combined with powerful stones for dispelling negativity, and for introducing joy into your life, which is why I have combined it with both Rose Quartz (heart chakra) for gentle, nurturing and unconditional love and Amethyst which is associated with the Crown Chakra and is also the February birthstone.
In this combination you have the full protection of your chakras from the root, through the heart and into the crown, all connected by the copper, which is one of the best known conductors available.
PLEASE NOTE*** Because each stone is unique, your necklace will be similar to this one, but the stone colouring will not be an exact match. That is the beauty of Nature and real stones. Enjoy and celebrate in it's unique beauty - just like yours!
