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!
This pendant is made up of three separate Carnelian stones set in a casual, vertical setting of Sterling Silver. The color is a deep burgundy that is set off by the bright and lustrous silver wrapped around it. Perfect for everyday wear, or at the office for some added kick to your day!
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.
