Carnelian is one of my favorite stones for multiple reasons. Each piece carries its own unique coloring and the properties of this stone are absolutely amazing!

Carnelian has long been used in this world as a token of good luck, strength and courage. Often used by Kings to add vitality to their daily lives and in the battle fields, Carnelian was a favorite stone in the ancient worlds and was often used for healing and due to its red color, it was thought to strengthen ones’ blood.
