Bloodstone is a crystal of strength, courage, purification and vitality with much ancient history. The ancient Greeks valued Bloodstone as an uplifting and protective gemstone. Ancient Greek gladiators often wore bloodstone jewelry or carried bloodstones while fighting as talismans for protection.
In the Middle Ages, the red spots in Bloodstone were thought to be spots of Christ’s blood, and special magical powers were thus attributed to the gemstone. The green was thought to represents the power of the Earth. Wearing a bloodstone bracelet can be very beneficial to your body as it is a powerful purifier and healing tool to rid the aura of negative energy. Once this is achieved, wholeness and balance are restored.
The ancient Greeks and Romans also carried bloodstones and wore bloodstone jewelry during athletic competitions to ensure endurance and give them physical strength to be victorious—thus leading to the creation of one of our original bloodstone bracelets, the Performance Bracelet. Our Performance Bracelet and Necklace were designed with athletes in mind, creating a specific combination of gemstones to bring energy, endurance and stamina to enhance their physical performance. Many professional athletes, like Dwight Howard, Mark McGwire, and Elaine Youngs, wear their performance bloodstone jewelry during practice and games to help them focus and perform to the best of their ability. However, these bloodstone bracelets are not just for athletes. Many musicians, performers and executives feel that wearing bloodstone jewelry gives them that needed energy boost and luck to excel in their field. Jason Mraz often wears his Performance Bracelet when he is performing on tour or interviewing on television.
