Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope is a type of jasper which is dark green with red spots. The dark green color is due to inclusions of chlorite, amphibole, and/or pyroxene within the chalcedony while the red spots are due to iron inclusions or jasper within the chalcedony.

Most bloodstone is mined from India though there are significant deposits in Australia, Brazil, China, Africa and Madagascar. Bloodstone forms at shallow depths and low temperatures by precipitation from silica-rich groundwaters in fractures and cavities.

The stone is polished into an oval shape and is rounded on all sides. Polished stones of this size and shape are generally referred to as pocket stones as they will easily fit into a pocket. The pictures are representative to the stone you will receive, but there is some variation in colors and patterning.
