Carnelian Crystal Jewelry
Carnelian is colorful quartz of chalcedony. It usually comes in reddish-orange, pink, and brown, and is often a translucent stone. Its name comes from two Latin words: carnal, meaning "flesh," and "backward," meaning "berry." Carnelian is an ancient gemstone that has been used as a gemstone since ancient times. Carnelian is also spelled as carnelian although the two are commonly known as the same stone.
The Carnelian Stone is a very attractive gemstone with a bright sunset fire. The Romans believed that Carnelian was a stone of courage. One fact that helps historians to explain Carnelian's fascination with the Arab and Muslim world is that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) wore a Carnelian seal in silver on the little finger of his right hand. Carnelian is perfect for making earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Carnelian is mined in the USA, South Africa, Brazil, Uruguay, Botswana, Madagascar, Germany, Slovakia, Scotland, and the UK.
