Raw Crystals are rugged and untouched by humans and machines and hence, the most sacred form of the gemstone. Bloodstone had a different name: Heliotrope, which translates to the turning of the sun. The reason for the name Heliotrope came from the belief that when placed in water, or even the rays of the setting sun, this crystal would turn the sun into a blood-red sphere.
