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 Carnelian pendant is square shaped and a beautiful deep caramel color. If you look closely you can see a bit of banding on the left bottom corner. The sterling silver setting is thick with chain link type patterns on the bottom. This is a pretty pendant and would make a great gift.
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.
