Carnelian is a vibrant orange-red form of Chalcedony, capable of igniting passion, love and desire as well as granting courage in the face of adversity. Ancient warriors would even wear amulets of Carnelian into battle for the rush of energy and empowerment that it brings! The Egyptians knew it as “the setting sun” due to it’s warm, captivating colour. Carnelian is also known as ‘the singers stone’ and is excellent for vocal clarification and boosting confidence before a performance or public speaking event.
Certainly not for the faint of heart, Carnelian is a perfect companion for the Autumn and Winter months to add a splash of bright, fiery power and fuel you through those dark evenings!
