BLOODSTONE FOR JEWELRY
First of all, when you are selecting Bloodstone, you might run across it by other
names. For instance, it is also known as heliotrope. Some people identify a variety of green plasma with red spots as Bloodstone.
Hematite is sometimes called by its ancient name, Bloodstone. And then there are people who try to call Fancy Jasper by the
name Bloodstone. But do not be fooled. As well, do not buy any any plastic imitations.
when you have found true Bloodstone, look for an attractive dark green, semi-transparent cabochon with a pleasing distribution
of blood-like, dark red spots. The cabochon should be well cut with a symmetrical and even profile, an excellent dome, superior
polish and a very small bezel. Such a gemstone would be a delight, well worth the slight premium in price.
Finally, set your Bloodstone in jewelry especially designed for you. For a premium
grade Bloodstone, I would suggest using yellow metal rather then white. However many people ask for a silver setting. Both
will work, depending on the look you create for yourself.
to create jewelry for you in Yellow Gold or in Silver.
