(1515)Bloodstone is a variety of quartz which occurs in massive formations. The color is green with flecks of red, although in smaller pieces of the mineral the red may not appear. It is also called heliotrope which refers to turning towards the sun, inferring that the reflection of the sun is blood-red. Bloodstone was said by the ancient scholar, Pliny, to have been used as a mirror for viewing an eclipse of the sun. The red spots in legend represent the blood of Christ wounded on the cross. Bloodstone is said to strengthen and oxygenate the bloodstream, enhancing physical and mental vitality. It will strengthen the heart, spleen and bone marrow and aids in balancing iron deficiencies. It is a powerful physical healer and reduces emotional/mental stress. It also stimulates the revitalization of friendships, love and other relationships. It helps one to demonstrate unselfishness and idealism, to improve ones talents and abilities, to enhance creative efforts and to support the decision-making processes. Bloodstone brings alignment, organization, smooth energy flow, generosity, idealism, good fortune and purification. It is good to keep a bloodstone in any place that needs its energy cleansed. It has also been used in the rectification of failing eyesight, lung congestion and rashes and has been helpful in the treatment of bladder and stomach problems, hemorrhoids and inflammation. It helps in childbirth, stops bleeding, and eliminates toxins. Bloodstone is one of the birthstones for March (with aquamarine), symbolizing courage, and the zodiac stone for Aries (21 March to 19 April)
