Bloodstone was considered a valuable stone for healing and banishment of negativity and it is said would guide people who were lost. Ancient warriors often carried an amulet of bloodstone which was intended to stop bleeding when applied to a wound. It is said to increase immunity and to clean the blood and to halt excessive bleeding. It may also be worn on the breast to keep warriors feeling courageous and strong and to keep their moral high, even after grievous casualties.
Bloodstone is also used in spells to draw money or increase wealth, calm fears and anger and ensure victory in legal matters.
Semi Precious Stones can be carried on the person as a talisman, as an altar piece to focus your energy on, or used in other ritual work.
