This translucent chalcedony (kal-SID-nee) is named for the red-orange color of the Kornel cherry. The vibrant red-orange to brown colors vary in tone on the strand, the lighter shades appear to glow, while the deeper tones display a brick red appearance.

Carnelian, a form of translucent chalcedony (kal-SID-nee), is named for the deep red-orange color of the Kornel cherry. Those who value the spiritual powers of Carnelian credit it with increasing motivation and self-determination.

Carnelian is the birthstone for the zodiac sign of Virgo (August 23 - September 22). For most cultures, from the 15th to the 20th century, Carnelian was one of four birthstones for August. In 1912, the United States adopted Peridot as the August birthstone, however in 2013, Britain recognized Carnelian as a secondary birthstone after Ruby.

From antiquity, carnelian has been worn in cameos in the belief that it would ward off insanity and depression. In contemporary times, carnelian is thought by some to enhance self-esteem and creativity, to combat feelings of inadequacy, to increase physical energy and overcome insomnia. In the home, carnelian is believed to increase motivation towards action. It is sometimes used as a talisman to protect against fire and misfortune. Carnelian is associated with the solar plexus chakra (the yellow chakra), in which imbalances are thought to cause digestive problems, as well as lack of confidence.

Clean Carnelian stones with warm soapy water and a soft brush. Rinse the stone well after washing it. Do not steam clean and do not boil carnelian. It is usually safe to use an ultrasonic cleaner.

Protect Carnelian from sharp blows, extreme temperature changes and harsh chemicals.

Rich tones of gold play off the warm color of Carnelian, but it is more often seen in designs with silver, antique silver or with pewter. Combined with deeply contrasting black onyx, the fire-reds of carnelian become even more vibrant for a sophisticated casual look. For a more adventurous impression, combine it with green Aventurine and a hint of something blue like Lapis Lazuli or Sodalite. Or, to create an exciting treat for the eyes, combine the fire-orange stone with vivid blue-green turquoise.
