Carnelian is a mineral of the Quartz family.  An orange colored variety of Chalcedony that is glassy, translucent. Its color varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals.

Carnelian a powerful aid to those who wish to build confidence, courage, passion, and power within themselves.  It is of great help to the gentle souls who wish for good things but have difficulty making them happen. 

The Sunset Stone of Carnelian was named so by the Ancient Egyptians who marveled at the collection of fiery hues simmering in shades of burnt orange and pale pink. Just like a killer sunset, the Carnelian Stone is something of a soul stirrer, ever ready to cleanse away the day and re-invigorate your strength with the promise of something new.

In antiquity, as well as today, Carnelian is believed to help timid speakers become both eloquent and bold. 

 Ancient Warriors wore Carnelian around their neck for courage and physical power to conquer their enemies. 

In Egypt it was worn by master architects to show their rank of builder, and alchemists of the Middle Ages used it as a boiling stone to activate the energy of other Chalcedonies. 

As the first stone in the breastplate of the High Priest, it signified the blood of the martyrs. 

Carnelian is said to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck.

Carnelian clarifies the voice. It is the Singer's Stone. It also promotes confidence for performances on stage or in live media.

Carnelian invites you to write, paint, dance and sing and it does so, by stimulating warmth and heat, loosening the limbs, letting energy flow, and encouraging you to embrace your inner child.

Carrying or wearing Carnelian can aid in awakening the vital energies of the three lower chakras, increasing zest for living and the willingness to take the risks inherent in all strong actions.

Carnelian helps one overcome fear of taking action or fear of doing the wrong thing. It assists one to embrace change and transformation in one's life.
