Black Rose And Raw Bloodstone Statement Necklace
This handmade statement necklace features a large raw bloodstone measuring 2.25 inches in length. The top is crowned with a blackened brass rose and thick black antiqued brass ring and is suspended from gorgeous black spinel beads. This is a long necklace (shown shorter here to illustrate size), the chain measures 29.5 inches long, and is a lanyard style necklace (can be placed over the head with no clasp needed).
Bloodstone is a green jasper with flecks of hematite and was associated with vitality in Ancient Greece because it appeared to actually have blood within it due to the red flecks. The color represented the power of the life force in Greek natural philosophy. In medieval times, Christian lore believed that bloodstone was formed at the site of the Crucifixion, when Christ’s blood fell on a piece of green jasper that sat at the foot of the cross.
This stone is associated with energy and strength and has protective qualities as well. It is an excellent energy cleanser and can also help with boosting energy and creativity. Spinel is a grounding and protective stone, so these two stones dance wonderfully together. This piece has a calming, protective, and kind energy and was charged under three consecutive full moons.
All of my pendants ship beautifully presented in jewelry boxes, making them perfect for gifting as well. This is a handmade art jewelry piece and is not suited for showering or submerging in water.
