Bloodstone has always had a mysterious aura to us. It’s dark background with flashes of bright red = endlessly alluring. It used to go by another name- heliotrope, from the Greek “helios” meaning sun, and “trepein” meaning to attract. There are many legends associating bloodstone and our sun, and the ancient Greeks believed that they directly interacted with each other. If placed in the rays of the setting sun, or under water, a bloodstone had the power to turn the sun bright red. Story has it that bloodstone was harnessing the power of the sun, and then could be used as healing agent or a protective talisman. In medical practices, the stone was placed on an ailing body part and it would (allegedly) miraculously heal the person, so soldiers and warriors would carry bloodstone into battle with them in case of emergency.

 

While we don’t necessarily need this ring to protect us on a battlefield, it couldn’t hurt to have an extra bit of protection in our daily lives. And what better way to carry it by wearing this awesome bloodstone pinky ring. A rectangular dark bloodstone with cropped corners is set into a beautifully ornate white gold setting. The detailing on the sides is in remarkable condition and the stone itself is speaking to that dark yet enigmatic side we like so much.
