2" Polished Bloodstone Worry Stone

 
This is a 2" polished, bloodstone worry stone. The pictures are representative to the stone you will receive, but there is some variation in colors and patterning.

Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope is a type of jasper which is dark green with red spots. The dark green color is due to inclusions of chlorite, amphibole, and/or pyroxene within the chalcedony while the red spots are due to iron inclusions or jasper within the chalcedony.

Most bloodstone is mined from India though there are significant deposits in Australia, Brazil, China, Africa and Madagascar. Bloodstone forms at shallow depths and low temperatures by precipitation from silica-rich groundwaters in fractures and cavities.

Worry stones are smooth, polished stones, usually in the shape of an oval with a thumb-sized indentation. They are often used by people for relaxation or anxiety relief purposes, the the same way as some people use a fidget spinner. Typically the worry stones are 1 1/2 to 2" across. They are may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stone, fidget stones, etc.
