Carnelian evokes quite a few happy childhood memories as her grandmother had quite a lot of Carnelian jewellery. We’re not saying she was ancient (!) but Carnelian was known to most ancient civilisations and has always been associated with spirituality. It used to be spelt Cornelian and it’s name derived from its colour. It is a red/orange/brown variety of Chalcedony coloured by iron. Who knew?!
Talking of ancient civilisations, Egyptians believed Carnelian could protect the living and also their departed in the afterlife. They would place it in the tombs to accompany souls on their journey to the place beyond. Carnelian also appeared in Hebrew mythology as a protective stone bringing peace and was used as one of the precious stones in the foundations of the wall of the heavenly city. Carnelian truly is an ancient treasure so grab a piece of heaven today.
In Buddhist regions of India, Carnelian jewellery is worn for protective rituals due to its healing properties and as it brings peace. In many cultures it was also paired with Lapis – more, we think, for the properties than the colour combo! Back to those ancients and those Romans who considered Carnelian lucky and would bring courage and power to the wearer. Roman high-ranking officers would wear Carnelian rings to seal letters as the wax didn’t stick to the stone.
