African Bloodstone is a form of Chalcedony and Jasper also known as Setonite. It is opaque to translucent green in colour with mottled red and dark green inclusions. It is believed to have got its name from the red spots with which it is peppered, and in some traditions is regarded as a sacred stone, with the red representing the blood of Christ.
African Bloodstone is said to provide protection from negative influences in the environment and the human bio field. It has long been associated with abundance in all things. Energetically, this stone is a cleanser and amplifier, meaning that it removes blocks, negative influences and vibrations and replaces them with positive, healing vibrations of a higher frequency.
Many healers believe that African Bloodstone can help with infections and a depleted immune system.Some say it can help shrink tumours and blood disorders of all kinds can be aided by the application of this crystal in a healing session. This includes detoxification of the circulatory and lymphatic systems supporting the liver, kidneys and lungs.
