Carnelian is a type of Chalcedony and is commonly found in Brazil, India and Uruguay. This beautiful Stone is very fiery in colour and can be found in shades of orange, red and brown. Carnelian is the most famous and, usually, least expensive chalcedony variety.

This Gemstone is only found in huge non-crystallised formations.

Carnelian is the traditional birthstone for Virgo.

Carnelian was known to most ancient civilisations and has always been associated with spirituality. It used to be spelt Cornelian, and its name was derived from its colour. It is a red/orange/brown variety of Chalcedony coloured by iron. Who knew?!

Roman high-ranking officers would wear Carnelian rings to seal letters as wax doesn’t stick to the Stone.

CRYSTAL HEALING PROPERTIES: What is Carnelian good for?

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.

It 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 Lazuli – 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.
