Carnelian is a variety of Chalcedony, a mineral in the Quartz family. Its' color can range from pale orange to deep red-orange and sometimes it is banded in varying shades. The best specimens of Carnelian come from India, but most of them on the market today come from Brazil or Uruguay.
Carnelian is a powerful Fire element stone and resonates with the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. By activating these three lower chakras, it is an excellent ally to help you build confidence, courage and power within yourself to take action and manifest your goals and dreams. It also helps you overcome fear and embrace change in your life.
Carnelian is an excellent aid for the physical body. It enhances the flow of life-force energy to strengthen and fortify the body and increase physical vitality. It also helps you break negative or hurtful physical habits and improve overall physical health.
When I wear Carnelian, I feel strong and empowered - like I can accomplish anything! I feel more focused and determined in pursuing my goals and I have more physical energy! As we begin this new year 2023, it is a great time to start (or restart) on the path to your personal goals and dreams and I hope the energy of this magnificent stone will help you do that!
You can find this and other Carnelian necklaces in the website store now. Let's get this year started with confidence!
