Carnelian is part of the Chalcedony family and represents our foundation, creativity, and flame-like energy. Known as "The Sunset Stone," Carnelian is something of a soul stirrer and aids in building confidence, and igniting your personal power.
Historically, Carnelian has had many roles. On one hand, it is said to be blessed with feminine energy; symbolic of the menstrual cycle, fertility, and linked to the Egyptian power of Isis. On the other hand, the masculine energy of Carnelian is all about shedding the old and embracing the new, stimulating love and passion, and longevity of life.
Is associated with the root, sacral, and solar chakras.
