Carnelian and Crystal Quartz Necklace

The Courage of Carnelian

Carnelian is a stone of vitality, courage and joy!  It has been popular since ancient times.  Carnelian has been known to be used as beads as far back as 10,000 BCE in Bulgaria.  It’s name is derived from its similarity in colour to the Kornel Cherry.  You can find it however, in a range of colours from pale orange to a very deep red orange.  It is a variety of Chalcedony, which is a mineral in the Quartz family.  Some stones are banded in varying shades which is due to the Quartz in Chalcedony being arranged in fibrous layers.

Some of the finest deposits of Carnelian are found in India; however, it is most abundant in Brazil and Uruguay.


Carnelian is a very important stone for our changing world today.  It strengthens the body through the blood, allowing not only a greater energetic flow of life force through the body, but also supporting the body to be able to sustain that increased flow.  Thus, helping us to embrace change and transformation in our lives.  Carnelian purifies the blood, liver and pancreas, as well as aids with stomach issues. 

It is an excellent support for detoxifying the body from alcohol, as well as letting go of self-destructive habits.  It assists in balancing the emotions, as well as releasing any apathy, fear or sorrow.

This stone is very useful for balancing male/female energies, and especially in healing the ovaries and testes.  It cleanses the reproductive organs, aids in fertility and impotence, and supports the birthing process.

And if that’s not enough, Carnelian supports us to tune into what we’re passionate about and to feel confident moving forward with manifesting our dreams.  It stimulates our curiosity, while bringing strength to our voice and confidence when speaking.

Why not give yourself the gift of Carnelian!

In joy & light,
