Carnelian (cornelian) is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a family of Quartz. Chalcedony semiprecious stones have been traditionally matched with silver.
Being the stone of the 2nd Chakra it increases the flow of (sexual) energy. Orange is also known as an anti-depressant color.
In the East Carnelians were considered to be the best of all stones for talismanic purposes. The deep red stones were the ones most prized by Muslims and they were frequently to be seen engraved with verses from the Koran. The ancient Romans believed it had powers of preservation from lightning and tempest, from vice and enchantment, blood poisoning and fever, and that it was good for the staunching of bleeding. Napoleon Bonaparte wore on his watch-chain as a seal, always carrying it about with him during the campaign in Egypt. The Carnelian was believed to protect the wearer from witchcraft, and, by warding off the glance of the envious, to avert the Evil Eye.
A stone of ambition and drive, Carnelian is a Power Stone! Excellent career stone, it is very helpful in making choices and decisions. It increases physical energy, personal power, confidence, motivation… and last but not least… the sex drive.
Carnelian has been designated as the birthstone for the month of July, the sun sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, which also rules silver.
It is also an alternate birthstone for the month of August (the second half of the month).
