Beautiful carnelian crystals from Uruguay, rich orange brown colour.
Although the colour of carnelian can vary, stones mostly occur in shades of orange to orange-brown. Stones with a very deep shade of orange which can sometimes look almost black are correctly known as sard.
When used for its metaphysical healing properties carnelian is a stone of power. It can be used to protect against negative energies encountered in everyday life.
The late Judy Hall author of the Crystal Bible recommends carnelian be used to clear the sacral chakra. Also known as 'svadhisthana' in Hindu Tantrism, this chakra is the energy field for emotions, deep feelings and for stimulating pleasure.
In the ancient world crystals were used as 'prescriptions' for improving health. According to some records carnelian, bloodstone and green aventurine are the three earliest stones to have been used for this purpose.
Carnelian was recommended for cleansing and restoring liver and kidney function. Today in crystal healing many practitioners still recommend these same three stones.
These carnelian crystals are a medium sized stone. Weights and sizes vary slightly from piece to piece.
