General Care for a Bloodstone
Unlike some crystals that are soft and easily damaged, like Gypsum, Brown Zebra Jasper won't sratch easily.
It's not the hardest stone in the world, getting just an average 6.5 - 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.
Because it's average and not super hard we recommend you don't mix this stone in a box or bag with other crystals.
It can scratch your other crystals, and it might get scratched by hard crystals like Topaz.

If you haven't cared for your tumbled crystal in awhile, it probably looks a bit dull and dark.
The totally scientific reason for that is because it's sad you haven't cared for it in a long time.

If it's just dust then a gentle wipe down with a clean cloth or brush is all it takes to restore its shine.
Otherwise, it's bath time!
