Despite the name, on generally would expect blood stone to be mostly green with a splatter of red. However, this particular cabochon carries far more of the red hematite and iron than typical. It truly resembles the name. Interesting in shape, the cabochon has a nice polish and lots of movement across the surface of the stone. The solid copper wire wrap provides a woven bezel and decorative weaves down the front side add interest. This pendant is sizeable, measuring approximately 2 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide. Though it is a fairly large piece, the stone is thin making for a lightweight and comfortable wearing necklace. Pendant will arrive on a standard 18 inch waxed linen cord, but upgrades are available should you desire!
