Bloodstone is a green jasper (chalcedony quartz) dotted with bright red spots of iron oxide. It is called the martyr's stone and was used during the middle ages to carve scenes of crucifixion. The legend is that bloodstone was first formed when drops of Christ's blood fell on some jasper at the foot of the cross. Both of these stones are lovely. My mother has always loved aquamarines (even though they aren't her birthstone). My Dad has a lovely set of bloodstone cufflinks. I loved them when I was a child until I heard the story about the crucifixion which horrified me. Now I am much more sympathetic to such histories.
Unfortunately, I didn't find any yarn in the store that I felt represented either of these stones in either color or lore. So, I decided to choose the color of the flower of the month. The flower for March is the Jonquil, or daffodil, in sunny yellow. The jonquil symbolizes friendship and domestic happiness and that also suits me this month, so the color of the month is yellow. We have some beautiful, springy yellows in summer blends. Yeah, spring is nearly here and yellow makes it fell closer!
