Carnelian – a vibrant stone that boosts confidence
The semi-precious stone known as Carnelian is one of the world’s most unique semi-precious stones - reputed ‘to banish emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life.’ – claim UK based Charms of Light who specialise in the assistance of paving the way to a greater understanding of the natural energies and power found within mother nature’s stones.
Revered as a stone able to assist in boosting fertility, our collection of 24 pieces of round etched Carnelian rounds, we understand to have come from the North Eastern reaches of Afghanistan and the Egyptian Indus Valley across the border - have been etched to resemble soccer balls while others contain etched hieroglyphics graphics and would do well to find their way into any aspiring beaders jewellery-making bead box. Just imagine the fun you could have in creating ethnic tribal jewellery.
Carnelian is mined in many regions throughout India, while sizeable deposits are found in Uruguay and Brazil in South America as well as the island of Madagascar off the South African coast. In the United States, large deposits are mined in Oregon and New Jersey.
The stone is believed to attract good fortune and loves warm water where it is believed to enhance one's creativity.
The world is your oyster, as they say, and the same can be said for the opportunities to create statement jewellery with these beautiful beads such as a bracelet, bangle, necklace, or anklet.
That said, this collection, which weighs in at 70 grams, has been heavily discounted with each bead now costs $1.58 each – a must-have for the jewellery-making box of goodies.
