In the medieval Church, the red speckles on the green heliotrope were believed to be the enshrined blood of Christ, and tradition has it that the beautiful mineral acts as a medium connecting the worlds of gods and mortals. Its name derives from the Greek and distinguishes it as the stone of the solstice.
