The warm, fiery colors found in carnelian gemstones make them extremely desirable for jewelry, but there is more to them than that. Carnelian stone benefits have been enjoyed for centuries. These fiery gems have adorned warriors heading off to battle, have been included in ancient burials, and were highly prized in Ancient Rome.
The orange color, which comes from iron impurities, varies from a light, pink-orange to deep red-orange or even a dark, brown-red. This range of colors inspired the ancient Egyptians to call the orange mineral rock "the setting sun."
Ancient Egyptian master architects wore carnelian gemstones to symbolize their position. Carnelian amulets were engraved with texts out of the Book of the Dead and placed on the dead to help insure safe passage.
During the Middle Ages, alchemists used carnelian boiling stones. They believed the orange chalcedony quartz would activate the energies of other types of chalcedony quartz. This energy transformation made it more useful to the alchemist.
Napoleon wore a lucky watch charm made with carnelian gemstones.
The German writer/scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe also believed carnelian brought good luck and provided hope, comfort and protection from evil.
