    Our Bloodstone Pendant is wire wrapped and really fascinating, because bloodstone itself has quite a history. Green jasper dotted with bright red spots of iron oxide, Bloodstone was treasured in ancient times and served for a long time as the birthstone for March. This attractive quartz is also known as heliotrope because in ancient times polished stones were described as reflecting the sun. Medieval Christians often used bloodstone to carve scenes of the crucifixion and martyrs, for which reason it was also dubbed the martyr's stone. According to the legend about the origin of bloodstone, it was first formed when drops of Christ's blood fell and stained some jasper at the foot of the cross. Even today, finely pulverized bloodstone is used as a medicine and aphrodisiac in India. Perhaps that explains why it is now rather difficult to find fine specimens of bloodstone on the market. Bloodstone is mined in India, Australia, and the United States. How’s that for a history of this beautiful Bloodstone Pendant.-
