Tumbled African Bloodstone
African Bloodstone has been used to increase energy and strength. African Bloodstone can help to enhance intuition and creativity and may be used to combat fatigue, irritability, and confusion. It’s good to keep a piece of Bloodstone in any place that needs its energy cleansed.
This stone holds all the same properties as the more common Bloodstone from India (Heliotrope) as it is also a Chalcedony. The main difference is the colour combination. Seftonite will have more of a translucent structure of greys, greens, and white with large spots of Red Jasper throughout. Heliotrope will be more opaque and deep green with splatters of Red Jasper throughout. Either way, they are both powerful healing stones and truly beautiful.
