Like the unexpected fire of a sunset, or the first flash of autumn brilliance, Carnelian captivates. Its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and joy that lingers, stimulating and empowering. Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history.
A glassy, translucent stone, Carnelian is a red-orange coloured variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its color varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty red-brown, though it is most known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals. Its name comes from a Latin word meaning "flesh."
The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian "the setting sun." In its orange hues, they identified it with the receptive or passive female energies, and associated it with the fertile menstrual blood of the mother goddess, Isis. In its red, red-orange to reddish brown shades, they considered it the active male energy stone, recognized by its glowing vibrant colour. Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire.
Orange stones, especially the Carnelians are excellent aids for training, coordinations of physical exercise programs, and for balancing energy levels. It is said to bring prosperity, new resources and good luck.
Embrace Carnelian's amazing energies with this handmade pendant!
