There’s some confusing information being spread around about Bloodstone that I wish to bring clarity to. Initially, we view Bloodstone for the characteristics of the ‘drops of red’ we see on this green Chalcedony stone. The red is Hematite and Hematite is widely known as a stone associated with blood as it contains iron and iron is essential for our blood being healthy. The myth that this stone is believed to be the original blood drops of Jesus descending from the cross sounds enchanting, but the truth is Bloodstone isn’t even mined from the famous hill he died on, Golgotha.
An artist carved a bust of the Christ on a Bloodstone because he was inspired by the red Hematite inclusions. However, the green Chalcedony with Hematite inclusions simply serve as a reminder to those whose faith is in the Christ. While the idea of it containing the blood of Jesus sounds alluring, the main purpose of Jesus’ crucifixion far exceeds any notion of his blood settling into the earth below his cross. I’ve served as an Interfaith Minister for nearly twenty years and my heart’s desire is to be truthful with you. Bloodstone can be a symbolic reminder of a Divine Love that is for you and will last for eternity. Hematite is a mineral that contains iron, a crucial element of our own blood. Blood has been a part of symbolism in ancient religions since the dawn of time. Your life has value, don’t ever let anyone tell you different.
Work with Bloodstone to improve your inward view and recognize that your life has value. Offer yourself grace because life is too precious to spend it condemning ourselves. The Christ Consciousness conveys the message that you are not condemned, you are loved and included. Hematite inclusions are a beautiful reminder that we’re all included in his plan for eternity.
