known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history. Its name comes from a Latin word meaning “flesh.“ It is believed to help timid speakers become both eloquent and bold. Ancient Warriors wore Carnelian around their neck for courage and physical power to conquer their enemies. The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian “the setting sun.“ In its orange hues, they identified it with the receptive or passive female energies and associated it with the fertile menstrual blood of the mother goddess, Isis. In its red, red-orange to reddish brown shades, they considered it the active male energy stone, recognized by its glowing vibrant colour. Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire.
