Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope or Blood Jasper, is a type of Green Jasper or Chalcedony Quartz with Red Jasper, Hematite, or iron oxide creating the “blood-like” effect. Bloodstone ranges from transparent to opaque and can be a light green-grey to a deep green-black or blue-black colour. You may also find white or yellow sections of the stone, which is sometimes called Plasma.
Some people believe that the blood splatter is from the Christian crucifixion of Jesus.Is supposed to help with divination magic and preserving health and youth. In India, doctors placed the stone on bleeding wounds (which may have had a scientific basis since sections of the stone can work as an astringent.)
We recommend that you do not roll your semi-precious stone dice on a surface harder than they are (i.e., glass or wood tables). We suggest you roll them in a dice tray to prevent possible chipping or breaking. See more about caring for Semi Precious Stone here
Natural Stone Disclaimer: Please note when ordering a set of our Semi-Precious Dice, they are created from natural materials, and there will be differences between every die. Our Semi-Precious Dice are hand-crafted, so there may be minor variations such as slight size differences, asymmetrical faces, or off-centre numbering. As such, each die is unique and may not be perfectly symmetrical; their roll is as balanced as one would expect from acrylic dice.
With our stone range we do short run engraving with special fonts to keep the dice limited run. You can find more information on our fonts here.
