In the 4th century, Damigeron (a famed writer who focused on stones) wrote that bloodstone was used for magical purposes, including the abilities to create weather, preserve youth and cause solar eclipses. This source of superstition dates back to the time of Pliny, who wrote that magicians would use this stone to turn invisible, and this power is later referred to by the Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio in his famous work “The Decameron.”
In the 13th century, Albert the Great (a Catholic bishop and canonized as a saint in 1931) referred to bloodstone as the “Stone of Babylon.” He described the stone as such because it was believed to have magical properties which the Catholic church saw as not of God.
Bloodstone is used holistically as a protective gemstone. It is used to prevent injury and threats, whether they’re physical or verbal. It’s used for promoting strength of will and mind, providing mental clarity in situations of high stress and a lack of motivation.
