“Also for March is Bloodstone”

Description from Granny Nancy: I just learned that March's second birth stone is bloodstone. The "classic" bloodstone is opaque green jasper with red inclusions of hematite. The red inclusions are supposed to resemble spots of blood.

You can read up more on bloodstone under "Meaning" that LB provides for us such as metaphysical healing.

I found other stones that blend well with bloodstone like dragon blood jasper.

Color: Green with red or yellow spots
Luster: Vitreous

    This would make a rich piece. Rather mysterious-looking.

    This birthstone is a great one for March. It reminds me of Cesar and the Ides of March! I can see so many pieces in your pick as well as a futue POD!

    Nancy, thank you for such an informative pick! The rich colors are lovely, and I never knew this about March’s other stone. Made it a fave. However, my beautiful daughter was born during the first week of March, but CAN’T STAND the sight of blood! She even grows faint! So, I’d best stick to Aquamarine! Besides, it is the color of her eyes, :)

    I love this stone, especially the African Bloodstone. My alternate birthstone also and I have been pleased to see the assortment LimaBeads has been offering. I am not so fond of the Dragon’s blood jasper. Thanks for the pick, Nancy.

    I love researching beads and learning about brand new ones I’ve never heard of. And Kathryn, definitely stick with aquamarine for your daughter. I personally LOVE aquamarine. Back when I was still making pieces, I bought a bunch of it. I think any of the interesting beads like bloodstone or African bloodstone are great for fall – I guess that’s just me.
