History: The name carnelian is from the Latin word carneus, which translates to fleshy which is because of the stone’s flesh-like colour. Carnelian is a crystal that has a long history, going back over 4500 years ago, Sumerian and Egyptian artisans made jewelry with carnelian. It was also highly valued by the Ancient Romans and Greeks as well. Napoleon found an octagonal carnelian on a battlefield in Egypt. He wore it until he gave it to his nephew. People wore carnelian rings to ward off feelings of hatred, jealousy, fear and anger. It was also said to protect the dead once they passed on. In households, it was also used as a protective stone to protect the home from storms, and it was carried by people as protection too. G. F. Kunz, a geologist and historian, said that Carnelian is useful for those who fear public speaking and that it would bring courage.

Where it's found: Carnelian can be found in Japan, India, Madagascar, Poland, Iceland, Russia, Slovakia, Peru and Romania. It can also be found in Australia, the Czech Republic, France, Bavaria, Germany, England, and Sri Lanka. It’s also in the United States in Connecticut, Florida, Tennessee, New Jersey, and Washington. The best stones are said to be found in India though.

Variations, Rarity and Value: Carnelian is an inexpensive gemstone, and it’s common in jewelry. It can be reddish orange to brown, as well as yellow, bright red, or pink. The red is due to the iron oxide so the deeper the red, the more iron oxide in the stone. Carnelian is a .6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.
