In the Middle Ages, the red spots in Bloodstone were thought to be spots of Christ's blood, and magical powers were attributed to the stones. Bloodstone is a great purifier, a healing tool for dispelling negative influences from the auric field and bringing one's subtle energies into wholeness and balance. It grounds one fully in the body, for the enhancement of one's strength, determination and courage. It increases vitality and can aid one in facing physical mortality. It is a good talisman for those who are ill, even if curing the illness is not possible, because of its power to let one look unflinchingly at the truth. Bloodstone is a stone of noble sacrifice, and it can offer courage and solace. It can elicit the highest, most altruistic character traits in whoever carries it or uses it.
