Bloodstone, also known as heliotrope, is a cryptocrystalline mixture of quartz that occurs mostly as jasper or sometimes as chalcedony. The "classic" bloodstone is opaque green jasper with red inclusions of hematite. In the middle ages, it was believed that the red spots were jesus's blood - hence it's name - and was thought to have magical powers. Energetically it is believed to be a purifying stone that helps bring about balance in one's energy. Energy healers also call it a stone of vitality, believing it can lend strength to the physical body and also offering courage to those in need.
