Blood Stone Witches Runes
Known as a stone of courage, dragon blood jasper is actually a variety of quartz that displays flecks and veins of red within an opaque green background.
Legend has it that these stones are the remains of ancient dragons - the green being the skin, and the red the blood. Metaphysically, dragon blood jasper is an intensely healing stone, promoting courage, strength, and vitality while also being very centering and grounding.
In the ancient world, Bloodstone (Heliotrope) was considered to be the most beautiful of the Jaspers, a deep, earthy green gem emboldened with spots of bright red. Called the Sun Stone, and later Christ’s Stone, its energy carries the purity of blood and inherently speaks of life and birth, vitality and strength, passion and courage. As a talisman it is both mystical and magical, and its virtues are protective and nurturing.
The most widely known legend of this stone comes from the Middle Ages and claims the “Blood Stone” was formed at the crucifixion Today, as then, Bloodstone is regarded as a gem of noble sacrifice and can offer courage and solace to all who are called to give of themselves for the good of others. It elicits the highest, most altruistic character of those who wear or carry it.
The Witches Runes are far from ancient or extraordinary. Many common forms of runes, such as the Elder Futhark, were from ancient civilizations and were used as part of the written language of the day. The Witches Runes have no clear origin, however they certainly are a modern creation catering to the modern Witch or Diviner. While this set comes in 13, there are other sets known to contain 8 or 10. Some say there are 13 to represent the number of moons in a year.
