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 crafting!
These tumbled polished loose Carnelian stones range in size from 2 cm to 4 cm but on average are 3 cm. They have a beautifully warm red/orange color and have taken to the polish really well. They are the perfect size for wire-wrapping or for using as a palm stone!
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.
