These Bloodstones are blue-grey to translucent milky white stones, most with brick-red spots or patches. In some stones the red colour dominates, in others it is minor or absent. These are beautiful natural stones that have not been tumbled or polished.
Note that the appearance of these bloodstones in quite different to our Tumble Bloodstones which are dark green with red spots.
The mineral aggregate heliotrope also known as bloodstone, is a variety of jasper or chalcedony (which is a cryptocrystalline mixture of quartz). The "classic" bloodstone is green jasper with red inclusions of hematite (as in our product Dark Bloodstone Small Tumbled Stones). These stones, however, are not green jasper but are a mixture of blue-grey to translucent white chelcedony stones with red hematite inclusions. The colour combination of the stones gives awesome natural effects.
