This is an unusual life size MOSS AGATE + BLOODSTONE crystal skull. Shown next to a 12oz/355ml soda can for size comparison. Approximately the size of a teenager or small adult. This particular skull is a slightly longer + taller shape than most of my life size pieces.
WOW! What a beauty! The top of the head, most of the upper half, and areas running down the back of the head are beautifully patterned Moss Agate, which then shifts into Bloodstone as you move further down into the lower half and underside of the head. Both Moss Agate and Bloodstone are varieties of green Chalcedony, which is how this combination is possible. Small "windows" of clear Quartz are mixed into the top of the head here and there - I especially like the one above the right eye socket. The hallmark "moss" patterns, which are inclusions of green minerals like Chlorite and/or Hornblende, are nicely defined. The lower half is full of tiny red speckles, the key marking that Bloodstone gets its name from. The longer you look at this one, the more beauty you will see. Truly fascinating patterns!
It weighs about 9lbs 10oz / 4.366kgs and measures approximately 8 3/8" long X 4 5/8" wide at the widest point X about 5 1/2" tall. Code-020623-20706
There may be small organic spots throughout from inclusions or the edges of inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. I inspect each crystal very carefully before photographing it, and always pick by energy first. These do not affect the energy or, I think, the overall look. Some people do not appreciate natural inclusions. I think it adds to the overall effect to have the natural inclusions in place. It takes a skilled carver to work with and honor the natural the crystal and not break the inner energy matrix. (But that is a personal preference!) ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural formations in the stone. The photos just can't do it justice - it is much nicer 'in person', I guarantee it! Check out how it works with subtle energies below.
Moss Agate is sometimes called the "Gardener’s Stone" because many of its energetic qualities are useful to help support the fertility of plants, ensuring a good crop with healthy growth as well as ample rain. It is believed to help one to communicate directly with animals, plants and all of nature. It is often used to strengthen creativity, and improve and boost self-confidence and self-esteem.
It's considered a beneficial stone to work with or wear to help one gain inner peace during times of
extreme or excessive stress or when weighed down by work or other duties and responsibilities in
life. Quite possibly those are all reasons why it is also thought to be a stone that attracts abundance,
success, and prosperity. It’s considered to be a stone that helps one to form rapport with others and has been used to support the growth of friendships and compatible love relationships.
Moss agate, like all agates, is considered to be a protective stone and is thought to carry a vibration that supports working together for the protection of the Earth.
In Crystal Healing, Moss Agate is often used with people who are working to overcome addictive behaviors, as well as with issues of circulation and digestive or intestinal disorders. It is felt to possess a frequency or energy of overall healing and restoration.
Moss Agate is associated with the Heart Chakra.
Bloodstone aka Heliotrope or St. Stephen's Stone. Bloodstone is a deep green stone with small red specks. These red specks are what gives the stone its name.
Bloodstone has long been called a "Stone of Courage."
It is often used for emotional healing, cleansing, and renewal - especially the renewal of all kinds of relationships. It is thought to bring good fortune to the holder.
In stressful situations, bloodstone is said to be very calming. It is also used to aid in working through grief and traumas. People have often kept bloodstone in any area thought to need a continuous cleansing of the energy as it is said to ease energy flows.
Bloodstone is excellent for balance and grounding and has been used to bring energy to the user. Some believe it is useful in legal issues, probably because it is believed to help release blocks and support decision making.
It is strongly associated with the heart Chakra first and also the root, sacral (2nd) and Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakras.
In Crystal Healing, Bloodstone is used in numerous ways. It is often given to chemotherapy patients, people with high blood pressure, and problems of the circulatory and cardiovascular systems, the endocrine system, kidney and bladder. It has also traditionally been given to people after surgery and after any kind of trauma.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."

People have asked me about how I clear my stones. You can read my BLOG entries on this site about working with crystals and skulls for details. Every one of the skulls and stones that I list has been with Synergy and is fully charged with the energy - after all - that's the whole point of me offering them to the public!
