Bloodstone is believed to help direct the healing vibrations of green into the blood stream and to strengthen the kidneys, liver, and spleen; the blood purifying organs. It is said to accomplish this either by being worn, placed on a cleansing organ, or by being taken as a gem elixir.
The contrast between green and red is visually appealing, and since these colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, we can look at bloodstone as a crystal that can help to integrate and blend opposites.
By assisting us in reducing conflict, it helps to free emotional energy that is otherwise tied up in tension and uncertainty. Thus, it helps to reduce physical and mental stress and assists in renewing the physical, mental and emotional bodies.
Because one’s energy becomes free to explore the unknown and take on new challenges, bloodstone is also called “The Stone of Courage“. For this reason, it is also considered helpful to those who are in business or self-employed.
Spiritually, it is also believed to help remove obstacles from one’s path, and restore love and integrity to relationships. Perhaps because of the grounding effects of red jasper, it is also thought to be a “be here now” stone, focusing us on the immeasurable powers and gifts of the present moment.
Bloodstone is considered a powerful healing stone with many magical properties. In ancient folklore, bloodstone was said to give off audible sounds as a guide. It gives one the ability to banish evil and negativity of all kinds.
Ancient Christianity held the belief that the blood of Christ dripped from the cross onto a dark green stone, thus creating bloodstone.
