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.
Good evening Steph,
Late is the hour at the end of drizzled grizzled afternoon and Dewin rides for the Tor 🙂
Carnelian is a beautifully translucent stone shimmering with pastel shades of fire: it often reminds me of the sweet blush of an English rose.
I read of the many and varied qualities this stone possesses and can see why you’ve been drawn to its charm. I trust the stone with its catalytic and soothing properties works its magical charm. What good fortune it may bring, what
I marvel at these small tumble stones, each a one off, unique, and perhaps thousands, maybe millions of years old. I collect crystal skulls. 6 so far and counting. I’m seeking a Labradorite skull to complete the 7 needed to finally have the power to rule the world lol 🙂
I was going to leave you a song…should I do so? It bears a tangent to the post, but is more a lil’ old giggle 🙂
How did the cover art idea go, or is it on the backburner simmering nicely else keeping warm and waiting?
Enjoy your evening. Keep smiling 😀
Good morning Dewin,
I trust your day so far is going well? The Sun is out and for an hour or two it may be warm.
So you aim to rule the world… I will be looking out for a labradorite skull for you. I’d love someone poetic to rule the world, what a fabulous place itvwould be then. 😊
So the song you were going to leave? I wait with baited breath.
No go on the cover yet but I have made some small advancement on it… all will be revealed in time…
Have a great day.

Good afternoon Steph,
How are you today? Did you sleep well? 🙂
My Friday arrived and I had already moved on to the weekend 5 minutes after having arrived at work this morning. I wasn’t in the mood at all…so booked a half day’s leave then took an hour of flexi-time and left at 11a.m. I am relieved to be back home. The claustrophobia at the coal-face of my employer was stifling. Hence I was able to enjoy a little sunshine en route home before the rain returned…the only benefit of which was that I was blessed by seeing a rainbow today and blessed with the beautiful thoughts that flowed from it.
Would you really look out for a Labradorite Skull for me? 😀 I’d be very grateful 🙂 It is an incredibly powerful stone bursting with mysticism, mystery, and magic. It’s a proper grown-up wizard’s stone to add to my gown and pointy hat lol 🙂
Regards the song and baited breath (!) it is a bit of a giggle, a colourful play on the word Carnelian…the best fit I could think of 🙂
Ah so the idea for the book cover is warming in the sunshine of your thinking and soon ready to burst forth from a pursed petal case and bloom a rose. I shall await the revealing with baited breath 😉
Enjoy your afternoon, have a wonderful day.
