These tumbled stones are identified as carnelian agate because they're agate which has been treated in order to replicate the natural colour of carnelian. Carnelian and agate are both varieties of the mineral chalcedony but carnelian tends to be less included hence stones exhibit more translucency. It's also slightly rarer hence more expensive. Some of the finest material comes from the Rio Grande do Sul province in Brazil.
Agate is a banded chalcedony which is a microcrystalline variety of quartz. Microcrystalline means the mineral's structure features microscopic sized crystals. Unlike quartz however which is anhydrous (without water), most agates contain a small percentage of water. In red varieties of agate including carnelian, the colour is caused by iron oxides.
These carnelian agate crystals are a medium sized tumbled stone. Weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece.
