What is Carnelian?
Carnelian is found across the continents and is present in the form of silica. It is most commonly available in an attractive array of translucent red and reddish brown shades.
It is believed to promote friendship- strengthen family love and guard against evil spirits. Carnelian is a talisman bringing good luck to all who wear it. As early as 2500BC the Egyptians wore it in the belief that it would bring peace by dispelling envy- anger and hatred.
One of its more unusual properties- according to 17th century writers- is that it is thought to protect the wearer from falling walls!
Medically speaking- Carnelian is also believed to help purify the blood and- according to the 18th century poem by Goethe- ‘from such a gem woman gains sweet hope and comfort in her pains.’
Carnelian is the birthstone for July.
