Carnelian is a lovely translucent orange semi-precious stone, a silica mineral, which is also a form of chalcedony. The gorgeous autumnal orange colouring is due to the presence of iron oxide. As with other forms of chalcedony it has been made into beads and carved into jewellery for thousands of years. The Romans discovered that hot wax didn’t adhere to it, this made it invaluable for imprinting seal rings. These Garnets are from India, a country that produces stones with the most intense colours. These too have also been used as gemstones for thousands of years.
Metaphysically, a stone that can attract prosperity and bring good luck. It is a stabilising stone, excellent for restoring vitality and motivation. Carnelian is also a stone that can stimulate creativity, and sharpen concentration. It is a stone that can also calm anger, dispel mental lethargy, and replace them with love and fulfilment. It is a stone to invigorate the mind and also the body. Garnets are the fiery, stone of passion, a stone that can also inspire love and devotion. Garnets also have powerful protective qualities, especially for those travelling far from home.
