Specimens clear with red-to-brown inclusions, average .5" x .75" in size.
These unique stones appear to contain drops of "blood" within the polished crystal. Stones with large inclusions contain large "drops," stones with small inclusions contain smaller "drops." (Drops range in color from crimson to gold.) Turn the stones and the natural crystal will amplify the "drops" to reveal greater detail.
Reputed to be good for all blood disorders as well as self-healing issues. Is there a situation in which you feel you have "shed blood" in vain? These stones will help one come to terms with such issues and reveal, through inner meditation, the proper path to take and the best way to heal. Issues include social conflict, physical strife, miscarriages or abortions, and similar situations. This stone is also a good energy-field cleanser, bringing in white light from the crown and grounding it through the root.
Traditional Uses: Wear in a pocket or pouch to carry properties with you. Sleep with stone(s) in pillow or headboard. Place stones on various parts of the body or chakras to improve their function. Make an elixir by soaking stone(s) for 24 hours in water--in sunlight, if "yang" or hot energies are needed in the body; moonlight, if "yin" or cool energies are needed in the body (drink as needed). Place stone(s) on an altar or in a spell's physical components to add particular qualities to magick.
History: Unusual stones have been used by most cultures throughout history for healing, protection, meditation, and spiritual awakening. Examples include Native American, Egyptian, Sumerian, and Druid cultures, plus modern Shamans, New Age practitioners, and spiritual healers. There is archaeological evidence that the earliest humans used unique stones and earth in spiritual or shamanic ceremonies.
