Stone Origin: Legend says that Bloodstone was said to have originally have been pure green Jasper which had formed at the foot of the cross. When drops of blood fell from Jesus Christ, they splattered on the stone marking it forever. Christian artists routinely used the stone for carving religious icons. The most extraordinary examples were carved so that the red spots appeared to flow from wounds on Christs face and body.

In the Middle Ages, people believed the red spots found on bloodstone were drops of the blood of Jesus that turned to stone when they fell from his body onto the earth during the crucifixion. Additionally during the Middle Ages, Bloodstone was thought to be capable of making a person invisible. The invisibility was referenced in the 12th century by Dante in The Divine Comedy, when he saw the damned in hell, “No hope of hiding-hole or heliotrope.”

Bloodstone has long been used against hemorrhaging. Europeans routinely pressed the stone against wounds. Spanish conquistadors later reported that Native Americans used Bloodstone for the same purpose. In 1574, Franciscan Frier Bernardino de Sahagun described how the Native Americans used Bloodstone during an outbreak of the plague.
