Carnelian ranges from a dark orange, appearing red, to a light orange, flesh color...thus, "carne" in its name, which is the Latin word for flesh. This stone inspires courage and clear thinking. Our Carnelian towers are a good example of the range in colors this stone provides.
If you are looking to revitalize the Chakras, the energy centers within us, Carnelian is a great stone to aid in this. The darker orange-red Carnelians resonates with the Root Chakra, and the lighter, fleshy Carnelians with the Sacral Plexus Chakra.
The Root Chakra is responsible for feeling safe or our sense of security, and the ability to trust. The Sacral Plexus Chakra is connected with pleasure and expressing our feelings in a healthy way. Once cultivated, we are able to move with the flow, and strengthen our relationships, platonic or romantic.
This stone provides clever solutions to difficult situations that may arise in your life, strengthening will-power and perseverance. An excellent stone to help manifest what you want to move forward.
