Bloodstone Tree of Life Pendant in Copper
Bloodstone, or heliotrope, was considered to be the most beautiful form of jasper in the ancient world. It is a beautiful deep green stone with spots of red. Its energy carries the purity of blood and it speaks of life and death, strength, vitality, passion and courage. It is a magical talisman that is protective, nurturing and grounding. Legend has that the blood stone was formed at the crucifixion of Christ, when the blood from his wounds fell on the dark green earth and turned to stone.
Wear or carry Bloodstone as an amulet of protection against threats or bullying, to increase mental clarity and to aid in decision-making or to stimulate dreaming and heighten intuition.
Bloodstone is a nurturing mother goddess stone, helpful in easing misunderstandings or difficulties with mothers or mothering issues. It also assists human and animal mothers in the bonding process after a traumatic birth or one where mother and baby were separated for a time.
The tree of life is a mystical and magical tree that is well known in many cultures. It represents our connection to all things -- earth, air, water, fire. In Celtic culture, trees were the centre of all that occurred -- the absence of trees would be the absence of life. In Christian tradition, eating from the tree of life is said to grant immortality. In Norse mythology, the tree of life, or Yggdrasil, binds together all realms of existence. This ancient tree represents our connection to our ancestors and also of our individuality. The stages of a tree's growth through the year mirrors that of the cycle of life, similar to the eternal life/re-birth traditions in many religions.
Every part of the pendant is lovingly and thoughtfully handcrafted in my studio. It takes several hours of craftsmanship to create each one of these sacred trees. The necklace will arrive beautifully packaged with an explanation of the symbolism of the tree of life and the meaning of the stone. This is a special and unique gift that won't be found anywhere else.
