Carnelian | Modern Bohemian Jewelry

So, if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that we’re just a teeny obsessed with stones. Like, it might be a bit of a problem. But, we’ve obviously figured out the perfect way to feed the obsession – designing jewelry that focuses on the beauty of natural stones. We want to share a few of our favorites and a little bit of interesting info about them. 

Carnelian is known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history.

A glassy, translucent stone, Carnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its color varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals. Its name comes from a Latin word meaning “flesh.”

In antiquity, as well as today, Carnelian is believed to help timid speakers become both eloquent and bold. Ancient Warriors wore Carnelian around their neck for courage and physical power to conquer their enemies. 

Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire.
