The mineral aggregate heliotrope, also known as bloodstone, is a cryptocrystalline mixture of quartz that occurs mostly as jasper or sometimes as chalcedony. The "classic" bloodstone is an opaque green jasper with red inclusions of hematite. Bloodstone is an excellent blood cleanser and a powerful healing stone. It heightens intuition and increases creativity. It is grounding and protecting.
Natural gemstones come from minerals, due to being a naturally occurring product the stones may have tiny flaws and colour variations. Cutting and or polishing may also cause variation in colour and size.
