We say: Carnelian can vary in appearance, some stones with some banding (attractive lines) while others are a more consistent orangey red. But also the basic colour can vary slightly. If you have a certain shade or type in mind please make a note on a payment page at the bottom under 'Anything else to tell us' and we will do our best to oblige. Otherwise we will pick you the one we are most drawn to at the time - no problem.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- New life, stimulates change
Carnelian has a vibrant and spicy energy that can stimulate new life where there has been depression and lethargy. It can help to banish apathy and general disinterest in life by introducing energy into your aura, which reminds your body and spiritual self of what it is like to help something to grow. By holding or wearing carnelian you will not magically be cured (only you can do that) but it will offer you a different road to travel. It can also help promote sociability and warmth to others and it exhibits many of the properties of agate. (Also sometimes referred to as cornelian).
