You can recognise heliotrope for its signature green colour speckled with red spots resembling blood drops. These are influenced by hematite admixtures and other iron compounds. However, a Christian legend attributes these spots to Christ’s blood, which dropped from his body on the stones under his cross.

Heliotrope uniqueness: Thanks to its composition, heliotrope from Africa stand out with its colours. The grey-green foundation is quartz work, while the complementing red shades are the evidence of jasper presence.

Use: Our rough stones are a beautiful interior adornment – filling up a vase, fountain or a lamp with them creates an original design. In the exterior, they may be a perfect decoration of gardens. They are also suitable for mineralogist collections and exhibitions. Rough minerals may also be further processed, e.g. small crystals are ideal material for pendants.

About the product: The minerals are sold in 1 and 2 kg bags, but we also offer a 25 kg package (cardboard box) for an advantageous price. The categories differ in sizes of the stones; a 1 kg bag is available with stone sizes M and L, a 2 kg bag with sizes XL and XXL.
