Sometimes referred to as blood jasper, bloodstone jasper, bloodstone chalcedony, or heliotrope; it is both jasper and chalcedony (jasper is a chalcedony, so is agate). Bloodstone is mostly medium to dark green in color, but has areas of brown and red, hence its name. The red spots are created by iron oxide within the stone’s structure; and the green is most commonly from chlorite, and may also be from hornblende.
There are two types of the mineral bloodstone/heliotrope. There is the plasma type which has yellow spots; and the other variety which has more red, is the one more properly called bloodstone.
