Pronunciation: Blud-stone (He-lio-trop)
Heliotrope is also known as Bloodstone, this intriguing looking crystal is strongly connected to the Root chakra. When you feel out of balance or ‘something doesn’t feel right’ from within, Heliotrope can help you grounding and balancing your chakra energies. In Ancient Greece, Babylon and Egypt they believed the red sports were Christ’s blood. It was then and is still used for giving courage, power to themselves and protection. The Babylonians took Heliotrope amulets to war, and the Greeks and Egyptians to sports events to give them the extra athletic power. Heliotrope is a bit of an overachiever, it enhances positivity, creativity and focus as well. The price of it is that this crystal does need extra cleansing as it gives off so much energy. Having Heliotrope with you on a regular basis we recommend to cleanse it every couple of days.
