Our rich red-orange carnelian beads are perfect for chasing the blues away, no matter how your jewelry style.
Carnelian is a translucent chalcedony or an A-grade Agate that receives its beautiful red and orange tints from iron oxides. Most deep red carnelian is heat treated to darken the material. As in most semiprecious gemstones, colors, bead sizes, and shapes can vary slightly due to differences in natural material, manufacturing, and cutting methods.
This vivid stone is one of the oldest gems worked by humans, with finely-carved pieces found in Asia Minor, Africa, South Asia, the Americas, and China. Alongside turquoise and lapis lazuli, carnelian was one of the three most sacred gems to the ancient Egyptians. The Greeks and Romans particularly valued carnelian and believed that it could calm bad temper, ease depression, and heal wounds.
