Bloodstone

   This green chalcedony stone contains spots of red jasper that resemble blood. Some believe the spots are dragon's blood. Worn as an amulet it brings fame, long life, prevents miscarriage and eases child birth. Sleep with it under your pillow to have dreams about the future. A witch can inscribe their name on the stone in their blood and exchange it with another witch who has done the same, and their power will increase ten fold. Also called the Spotted Heliotrope.
