One of our favourite features of bloodstone - a variety of polycrystalline quartz named for its unique appearance - is that no two specimens are ever exactly alike. Recognized for its deep green near-opaque field ("jasper," the quartz material) shot through with red from iron oxides, there's no wonder that for millennia its admirers have believed it to wield great power. Thought at various times to promote rapid healing (and prevent wounds), to confer strength (and even invisibility!), and to encourage creativity; these features are just as likely as its striking, dramatic beauty to be responsible for its continued popularity.

This ring features a smooth, buttery mount that is the perfect complement to the slightly curved surface of the stone, and feels comfortable and substantial on the finger.

Good vintage condition with wear in line with age and use, including some small scratches to the face of the stone.
