Carnelian's flame-like colors vary from a pale pink-orange tone to a deep red, to a rusty brown tint often with unique banding, flecks, patterns, white stripes, or pockets of crystals. This vibrant, strikingly-colored stone is prized for its fiery brilliance.
Carnelian, also called Cornelian, is often known as the "Singer's Stone" as it is believed to impart courage, confidence, and the power of expression. Ancient warriors wore Carnelian to lend them strength, power, and courage in battle. Metaphysically, Carnelian is known for aiding in endurance, courage, concentration, patience, and motivation. It is also known as a birthstone for the month of August.
Due to the nature of the crystalline structure, Carnelian is known for its fissure lines, banding, divots, pitting, druzy pockets, and cracks. These features are a natural aspect of the stone, adding to its charm and character and are not considered flaws.
