Jazz’s Gems




    Bloodstone is a beautiful dark green gem with bright red specks in it. It shows up in your life when you need a boost of energy. It is a variety of chalcedony and is also known as Heliotrope. This mood stabilizer is associated with Aries, Libra and Pisces and it is the birthstone of March. If you are looking for something that will heighten your intuition- this one’s for you! It will also strengthen your heart, both physically and spiritually. 


    If you are anemic, Bloodstone will help. It will also detoxify the liver, intestines, kidney, spleen and bladder. It heals all things related to blood and can improve your circulation. Bloodstone will also increase the purification levels in your blood, which in turn will boost your immune system, aid with your eyesight and help with rashes. This gem will help to overcome influences like geopathic and electromagnetic stress as well.


    Bloodstone represents courage, vitality and energy. It has been reported as being an “audible oracle” as it has been known to give off a sound to help guide the user. It will provide abundance, and make you feel safe and unswayable. It will aid in you getting back on your feet after abandonment, loneliness and bullying as it will clear out negative energy. If you need help with boosting energy, or are needing some brightness in your soul, get yourself some bloodstone, or give it to someone who needs it. It will also bring your mind and body to balance and can help with decision making and spiritual matters. 


    If you feel a need for bloodstone, there are a few ways that you can use it. You can put it in your home and it will protect your space, but wearing it is the best way to get the most use of this amazing gem. It is most beneficial when it is in direct contact with the skin so the healing vibrations can do their job. If you wear it as a bracelet it will beat against your pulse. If you wear is as a pendant it will connect to your chest and heart and if you wear it as a ring it will send the vibes from fingers to toes. 


    Not only is Bloodstone very beneficial for your body and mind, but it is simply stunning to look at. The dark green with splashes of red draw in your eye and can instantly provide a sense of safety. 


    Bloodstone’s planet is Mars, it’s element is Earth and it’s numbers are 4 and 6.


About the Author:

Merry meet! I’m Jazz and I’m a Canadian oddball. I love roller derby, kickboxing, spending time with my dog and husband & love all things art, craft and pagan!

I was raised by a Roman Catholic family but discovered Buddhism, then Paganism while in elementary school and have followed the Pagan path ever since.

My main deity is Gaia as she approached me in a dream and I feel a very strong connection to her.

I love working with runes and absorbing knowledge and working on my never ending book of shadows.

I have always been drawn to the arts & have done many crafts and randomness for as long as I can remember. I find it peaceful and it helps settle my mind. I enjoy drawing, painting, cross stitching, doll making, jewelry making and more! I hope to spread my love and passions with others and put as much positivity in the world as possible.

Feel free to check out my Facebook and Instagram! Thanks for popping by and Blessed Be!
