I have found myself drawn to wearing carnelian jewellery today. The beauty of this crystal always takes my breath away and makes me smile.
The stone is one of the oldest that was used for seals, jewellery and good luck charms. The Romans famously carved likenesses of their emperors and gods into carnelian. It was considered lucky and to wear it offered the ability of keeping the wearer healthy.
How can anyone look at this stone and not smile. Happiness and joy ooze from its beautiful colours it is said to expel negative emotions such as jealousy and envy. It can help attract joy and success and it is associated with solar energy, therefore offering energy and zest for life. If you need a little pick-me-up why not carry a piece of carnelian with you. It may just help.
