Bloodstone, also known as heliotrope, is a mixture of quartz that occurs mostly as jasper or sometimes as chalcedony. Bloodstone is generally an opaque green jasper with red inclusions of hematite, though it may also be grey or brown. It occasionally features pyrite inclusions. The red inclusions may resemble spots of blood, hence the name bloodstone.

Family: Quartz

Locality: The main source of bloodstone is India, though smaller deposits can be found in Australia, Africa, the Middle East, Central Europe, and Scotland.
