Carnelian is a red agate or chalcedony which has been used as an ornament since very ancient times.
In Egypt, in the times of the pharaohs, carnelian was associated with the goddess Isis and it was believed that wearing carnelian jewelry could help cure blood diseases.
Linked to the 1st and 2nd chakra, carnelian is an anchor stone, which helps to live in the present moment and gives spontaneous confidence in the events and vagaries of life.
It treats sexuality disorders, frigidity, sterility, and helps to find a fulfilling sexuality. It is excellent for improving blood circulation in general, and it will be of great help in regulating women's menstrual cycles, but also problems related to menopause (mood swings, hot flashes...).
Carnelian is purified with distilled salt water, and recharged in the sun, on a cluster of Quartz or an Amethyst geode.
Carnelian corresponds to the astrological sign of Aries.
