Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Bloodstone strengthens your immune system and keeps it alert and responsive to your body’s needs. Bloodstone’s energy empowers certain microorganisms in your bloodstream that are vital to optimal immune function, making your body an incompatible environment for infections of all kinds. Bloodstone also facilitates the removal of toxins from your body and enhances your cells’ absorption of nutrients.
To understand Bloodstone’s special role in boosting immune function requires an understanding of certain components of the blood and their role in promoting health. Today, microbiologists are describing newly discovered sub-cellular components essential to the body’s healthy functioning. Bloodstone has a natural affinity with certain of these components. Through its effects on them, Bloodstone profoundly benefits the immune system.
When you wear a necklace of Bloodstone spheres, Bloodstone energy collects in certain sub-cellular components in your blood that we may call mutable bodies. These microscopic, plant-like organisms are part of your immune system’s early-warning mechanism and are essential for life. Mutable bodies have both physical and more purely energetic components. The center of a mutable body is comprised of energy with a higher vibration than physical matter, thus allowing the center to transcend certain physical laws. This center is surrounded by a layer of physical vibrations, which manifest as protein molecules and can be compared to a plant’s cell wall. The dual nature of the mutable bodies—i.e., their physical and nonphysical components—allows them to provide a vital service to the immune system.
Mutable bodies share certain characteristics of plants. Just as plants absorb both nutrients and toxins from the soil in which they are planted, mutable bodies absorb nutrients and toxins from the blood. Like plants, mutable bodies also convert metallic forms of nutrients into colloidal forms. Vitamins and minerals occur naturally in both metallic and colloidal forms in the plants we eat, but the body can use only the colloidal forms for nourishment. Not only do mutable bodies convert metallic nutrients into their colloidal forms, they also deliver these nutrients directly to the cells that need them. Mutable bodies also absorb toxins, such as heavy metals and toxic chemicals, from your blood and cells. These toxin-laden mutable bodies then exit your body through your organs of elimination.
Any change occurring in your body, no matter how small, is reflected in the vibratory quality of your blood. A change in blood quality can be caused by many things, such as the ingestion of a certain food, a sad or happy thought, a trauma, a therapy, or an infection. Mutable bodies, which live in your blood fluid, are sensitive to the vibrations of their environment. Changes that significantly alter the chemistry and vibrations of your blood affect them directly. When such a change occurs, the mutable bodies’ walls mutate to reflect the change. For example, when you have a healing or joyful experience, your body’s vibration rises. In response, the mutable bodies’ walls change to reflect the higher vibration. This allows their centers to express more of their energies through the walls. The resulting infusion of higher energy into your bloodstream leaves you feeling vital, uplifted, and energized.
The ability of mutable bodies to reflect their environment is key to how they work for the immune system. Another example of how mutable bodies reflect changes in the blood is their response to a bacterial invasion. In this case, the mutable body walls quickly take on the appearance and characteristics of the invading bacteria. The result is that, in the early stages of an infection, your blood will appear to contain more bacteria than it actually does. This illusion of bacterial abundance is normal and, in fact, essential to your health—it alerts your immune system to the infection much more swiftly than if only “real” bacteria were present.
When your body has successfully overcome the infection, the mutable bodies respond by resuming their plant-like forms. This is important, because it is only when mutable bodies are in plant-like form that they can bring nutrients to your cells, remove toxins, pass higher energies into your body, and alert your immune system to new invaders.
A healthy immune-system response depends on the optimal functioning of the mutable bodies. If they are weakened or otherwise unhealthy, the immune response becomes compromised, and illness can set in more easily. Mutable bodies can become unhealthy when your body is constantly overworked, excited, agitated, stressed, or dosed with caffeine.
These stresses cause the mutable bodies to become overreactive and change form at the slightest change in blood vibrations. This, in turn, confuses the immune system and makes it respond unnecessarily. The immune system becomes like a group of firefighters who continually respond to false alarms; eventually, they stop paying attention and can miss a real fire. The immune system can start to ignore certain warnings and even certain kinds of infections. Furthermore, when mutable bodies are over-reactive, the blood becomes filled with an excess of disguised mutable bodies, and not enough plant-like ones are available to perform their essential jobs. The resulting dysfunctions can include premature aging, low energy, allergies, environmental sensitivities, and diminished organ function.
Enter Bloodstone. Although anything beneficial to the body can encourage mutable bodies to return to their original, plant-like forms, nothing does this as effectively as Bloodstone. Bloodstone helps mutable bodies reverse their over-reactivity and better discriminate between a real need to mutate and a false one.
The Bloodstone energy itself also distinguishes necessary mutable body “disguises” from excessive, unwarranted, or worn-out ones. Bloodstone energy collects around the mutable body walls. There, it clears away any unnecessary vibrations and dissolves the unnecessary disguises, allowing the mutable bodies to return to their plant-like forms. In this way, Bloodstone relieves your immune system of the burden of eliminating the excess mutations so that it can focus its energies on resolving the real infections.
Bloodstone energy also fortifies mutable bodies in their plant-like form, making them robust and strong. Specifically, it strengthens their walls and the very nature of the mutable bodies themselves. Bloodstone empowers them to serve your immune system in a more proactive way and makes your body much less susceptible to infection. When enough mutable bodies are empowered, the overall vibration of your body is uplifted. This uplifted vibration is incompatible with that of bacteria, viruses, and other infectious agents, such as parasites. Existing infections die off, and external agents receive the message that they are not welcome. At the same time, your body becomes able to rid itself of toxins more easily.
If you are wearing Bloodstone and have a significant infection of parasites, yeast, viruses, or bacteria, much dead matter can build up in your body as these microorganisms die off. Such a buildup can be noxious to the body; dead parasites, in particular, can be quite toxic. Therefore, it is essential to keep your bowels moving during the time you are wearing Bloodstone. If drinking extra water isn’t adequate to prevent constipation, temporarily use additional fiber or herbal laxatives and supplements that support the liver and organs of elimination.
Because wearing Bloodstone can help keep your immune system alert and resistant to infection, it can be helpful to wear a Bloodstone necklace when visiting a foreign country or places where contagious disease is present, such as a hospital.
Supporting the Work of Dark Green Aventurine
Bloodstone can support the work of Dark Green Aventurine, which strongly encourages the body’s organs to release stored toxins. Bloodstone can help flush the toxins released by Dark Green Aventurine in someone whose body is overburdened by drug or other toxic residues. Wearing a necklace of Bloodstone spheres whose size is nearly equal (within 2 mm) to those of the Aventurine can help the body handle the release of toxins more safely and efficiently. The Bloodstone will cause the mutable bodies to reveal their plant-like forms, which will readily absorb any toxins that Aventurine is releasing.
The color of therapeutic Bloodstone is a distinct, rich, and consistent dark green. Therapeutic Bloodstone also contains red flecks and, occasionally, flecks of orange or yellow. Of these colors, red represents the highest quality, orange is next best, and yellow the next. Ideally, the flecks are distinct and appear either as tiny pinpoints or larger patches and do not dominate the green color. The presence of shiny pinpoints that look like translucent crystalline structures is beneficial. White flecks or patches are not desirable. Bloodstone spheres that are bluish or muddy or in which green does not dominate are not therapeutic.
Bloodstone is best evaluated in direct sunlight, where one can assess the color, translucency, and flecks most accurately. The higher the quality of the Bloodstone, the more effective it is at enhancing the mutable bodies’ ability to absorb toxins and transform vitamins and minerals in the blood into bioavailable forms.
I began to develop a bladder infection that was quickly becoming painful. I put the Bloodstone necklace around my neck and drank lots of water. Within two hours, all the symptoms were gone. I now put on my Bloodstone at the first sign of any cold, flu, or other viral or bacterial symptoms.

I used to get the flu every year, but since I used Dark Green Aventurine and Bloodstone to help me through a bad flu, I have not had it again. I have stayed well for over two years running, and everyone notices the difference in me.

Bloodstone is an incredibly helpful gem. A few days ago, I contracted a cold. I wore the Bloodstone for most of that day, through the night, during the next day, and through the next night. When I woke up the third day, my symptoms were 90 percent gone, much to the relief of my afflicted nasal cavity!
When I got my first Gemisphere necklace, Bloodstone, I was really sick with an undiagnosed systemic yeast infection. I had been so sick and miserable and had been to many doctors, even to the ER, yet no one had helped—until I wore the Bloodstone. Wearing it pumped up my immune system so much it caused a die-off of the yeast. That reaction helped me realize I was suffering from candidiasis, caused by antibiotics I'd been given for salmonella poisoning. I wore that necklace until I was completely free of candida, and now my best friend is borrowing it to boost her immune system.
Thank you, Gemisphere, for the wonderful healing tools you've given me, starting with the immune support I received from my Bloodstone necklace.

I travel overseas a lot for work, and in the past I often caught colds from poor sleep and jetlag. After wearing a Bloodstone necklace for a year, both while traveling and whenever I feel a cold coming on, the likelihood of a full-blown debilitating cold seems considerably reduced. When I do get sick, my recovery seems much quicker, as well. Bloodstone is proving to be an invaluable asset for me.
I find Bloodstone to be very effective at alleviating allergies. Within 24 hours of wearing it, I went from a state of constant discomfort to no discomfort at all. I appreciate your gemstones!
Some time ago, I purchased a Bloodstone necklace from Gemisphere and wore it daily for several months, after which I wore it only occasionally. One day I began to have the sniffles accompanied by sneezing. I immediately put on my Bloodstone necklace, and literally within minutes, the sniffles and sneezing were gone. Also, I have been allergic to cat hair for several years, but since I started wearing the Bloodstone necklace daily, even when I am not wearing it, I am no longer allergic to cat hair!
I have always been convinced of the healing energies of the Earth, but since becoming a customer of Gemisphere, I am even more convinced that gemstones have powerful vibrations for healing spirit, mind and body. Thank you, Gemisphere!

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Bloodstone necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems.
It is particularly beneficial to wear a Bloodstone necklace so that it touches your skin. If Bloodstone is worn over clothing and not touching the skin, it will take much longer to work. This is because of the somewhat unique way in which Bloodstone works. When Bloodstone touches the skin, some of its energy radiates into the aura, but most moves directly into the body, where it starts working on the blood.
You can also use Bloodstone for more focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place it on a specific area of your body to focus its healing energies there. For example, you can curl up the necklace and place it on an ailing, injured, or painful area to accelerate the area’s recovery.
Strengthening Local Immune Response
Bloodstone is placed on an ailing area to boost the body's immune response there. The Bloodstone's energy also facilitates the transfer of nutrients to the area and the removal of toxins or metabolic wastes as it helps bring the area into greater harmony with the rest of the body.
Bloodstone can be worn continuously. However, it is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.
Cleanse Bloodstone Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Bloodstone necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight.
Water Rinse: Rinse the gems 2 – 3 times a week.
Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time.
Clay Cleanse: For deeper cleansing, occasionally perform a bentonite clay bath or pack.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
