Carnelian, sometimes referred to as sard, is a variety of chalcedony, colored by impurities of iron oxide. It ranges from an intensely deep red to red-orange hue.
This beautiful stone has been used for since Neolithic times. Carnelian has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the property of the noble class, it was often used as a signet or seal (hot was does not stick to carnelian). People holding a high social status were often buried with this gem stone.
Said to provide energy, protection against bad vibrations, assists in giving a sense of humor & calms the temper.
