Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope, is considered to be the most beautiful of the Jaspers. Its energy carries the purity of blood and inherently speaks of life and birth, vitality and strength, passion and courage. As a talisman it is both mystical and magical, and its virtues are protective and nurturing.
In Buddhism, the horse is symbolic of energy and effort in the practice of dharma. It also symbolizes the air, or prana, which runs through the channels of the body and is the vehicle of the mind. A Wind Horse is symbolic of the mind and the wind is its vehicle, therefore it can be ridden upon. This means that we all have the possibility of controlling the mind and can guide it towards any directly at any speed we wish.
