Carnelian is a variation of the silica mineral Chalcedony, colored by iron oxide. The color varies wildly in Carnelian and can be anything from pale orange to an intense, nearly-black red. It sits at 6-7 on the Mohs Scale and so it is a durable stone; great for jewelry!
These 6 mm Carnelian beads have an incredible variation in color and banding with light reds and deep oranges throughout, and with the occasional stripe of creamy white. These beads are round and would be excellent for use in making a Mala, or for bracelets and other jewelry projects!
Carnelian is believed to be a powerfully grounding stone to carry with you. Something unique about Carnelian is it's strong associations with clarifying perception, helping concentration during meditation, and focusing those with a tendency to daydream.
