Did You Know

 


Did you know, legend has it that bloodstones were oracles and gave off sounds of guidance? They are also purported to support long life. Bloodstones get their name from the red jasper sprinkled in the stone.

  3. That's a fun fact! Here's another one, bloodstone is also the gem for the month of March. Or one of them. The other is aquamarine

  12. I didn't know that, but it's always interesting to read lore like that. It suggests a spooky story around a campfire.
