This is a beautiful sterling silver pendant. It encases faceted garnets with the center stone being a green and red bloodstone.
Bloodstone was believed to have healing powers, especially for blood disorders. It is sometimes called the “martyr's stone,” as legend tells that it was created when drops of Christ's blood stained jasper at the foot of the cross.
The history of garnet dates back to the Bronze Age, more than 5000 years ago. Its name, which has been used since these ancient times, was derived from the Latin word granatium, which means pomegranate.
Comes with a complimentary chain.
