Bloodstone Gems

  Page   1           


If you see the bloodstone images below you might be a bit surprised. This is because most people associate the name of a gem named bloodstone, to have a bright red color. This report on bloodstone is very informative and will provide comprehensive details about bloodstone gems. To begin with bloodstone is not a gem stone species on it's own. It is a type of jasper, a deep green opaque jasper to be precise. This opaque green stone has reddish spots scattered in it. Some of these red spots can be spotted on a cut bloodstone. Since it is opaque, it is not possible to get a cut where the maximum red spots can be seen. Basicall you get to see what is inside only after the cutting is complete. If you see the quality of blood stones being provided in the gem market for the past two decades, you will notice that very scarce and scant red spotting is noticed. But gem buyers who are looking for bloodstone do not worry about this. Over 90% of bloodstone jewelry wearers get the stone for it's deeper meaning and significance. At first glance, the gem does not seem to have any dynamic beauty but, if you read about the traditions and meanings attached to bloodstone you will be truly impressed.

So now, let's spend some time understanding the meaning and tradition of bloodstone. The origin of the name bloodstone itself makes an interesting story. The Christians believed that this green jasper lay at the feet of Lord Christ during his crucifixtion. As drops of blood dripped from the crucified Lord, the blood stained the green jasper below. This gave the stone the name bloodstone, a green jasper with red spots. You now know the meaning of the name bloodstone and why this jasper came to be called blood stone.

Once bestowed with the name bloodstone, this green jasper found it's way into the beliefs and cultures of many civilizations. None of the medicinal properties attributed to this or any other gem are being recommended by us. Your medical advisor is the best person to take care of your health. Information mentioned here is only being presented in the form of a report. Many people believe that wearing a bloodstone jewel helps cure blood disorders. This belief is existent not only in Asia but has believers in advanced countries like the U.S and U.K and France too. It is believed that for the best effect, the pendant or ring with bloodstone should be designed and produced to allow the stone to touch the skin. In countries like China and India crushed bloodstone, has been included as a prime ingredient in many traditional medicines. Traditional medical practitioners have retained the centuries old practice even today.

Christians have carved many religious statues depicting saints and religious events in bloodstone. It is said that a major portion of the bloodstone that is mined each year is used in carvings and traditional medicine. A very small percentage of the blood stone reaches the gems and jewelry market. This is the reason why large scale production houses do not show too much interest in this green jasper. The gem has also been given the name heliotrope and this with an interesting reason too. The name originated from the word helios (meaning sun). It is believed that the reddish color of the setting sun in the Mediterranean region resembled the red spots on bloodstone. A further similarity was drawn to the green sea below as it reflected the setting of the reddish sun. So remember that the name heliotrope is not related to any mineral present in this green jasper.

 A significant portion of the demand for any gem stone is related to it being a birth stone. Red garnets, aquamarines and even diamonds are gorgeous gems but they also happen to be present in most birth stone charts. Bloodstone is an interesting gemstone when it comes to birthstones. Whereas most people prefer to choose aquamarine as the birthstone for the month of March, many birthstone charts list this green jasper with red spots as an optional March birthstone. Studying the birth stone traditions across the globe, bloodstone is listed as the birth stone (along with aquamarine) for the month of March in the modern birth stone chart list. The Arab, Hebrew and Roman list this jasper as the March birth stone too.

Lets now understand a few technical issues related to bloodstone. Some of these issues will influence the way you should wear and look after your bloodstone ring or other jewel, so do give it a good read. The stone has a hardness factor of 7 which is good, considering that the best hardness factor on the Mohs scale is 10. Almost all bloodstone gems are cut with a smooth cabachon cut. While oval shapes are the most common, round bloodstones and even bloodstone beads can also be found. Kaisilver as the leading source for handpicked and custom cut gems, offers this gem in all shapes and sizes. You can see some gorgeous heart shaped bloodstones in the images below, these are rare since not many gem manufacturers care to put in too much effort in choosing shapes and cuts for this green jasper. While hardness is not a problem you need to be aware of one other fact concerning cut bloodstone gems. If you look at a cut stone, you will see a sheen or gloss on the surface. This comes with an advanced  polishing process that uses special lotions. If your bloodstone ring gets soaked in water or comes into contact with strong solvents or detergents, this upper polish layer can get negatively affected. When this happens, the stone might show a dullish appearance.

Design tip: Bloodstone is not very expensive and this prompts jewelers to make bloodstone rings with, huge and bulging bloodstone gems. This might look lavish and give the jewel an extravagant appearance but, it also increases the chances of the bulging stone being struck by hard objects or physical impact. For this reason make sure the the stone in your bloodstone jewel does not protrude too much. On the other hand, bloodstone pendants can be made with protruding gems as pendants are not exposed to the same wear and tear as rings.

With complete control over the entire production process, we offer a degree of personalization that no other jeweler can match. The gemstones used in producing our jewelry are handpicked and custom cut. Selection is made from over 200 million carats of gems sent in by the worlds largest gem manufacturers and miners. While remaining focused on the custom jewelry sector, we have recently decided to respond to buyer requirements for gems. Jewelry lowers and small sized jewelry shops often find it difficult to get handpicked gems in small quantities. Many requirements are for single pieces, but quality is important.

Kaisilver jewelry is proudly worn by over 9,000 jewelry lovers in 17 nations. With the complete absence of marketing and advertising gimmicks, we have also relied fully on buyer satisfaction to stay and grow in business. Our buyers include, politicians, fashion models, government officials, members of the armed forces, resort and casino owners, sportsmen, journalists and news readers, doctors and surgeons, professors and students, lawyers, housewives, financial experts and others.

How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to sales@kaisilver.com provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
