Crystal Of The Month - Carnelian


I hope you all are easing into the New Year beautifully! I've had the chance to rest and refocus myself, and I'm eager to share some fun new offerings with you all very soon.

Since we are at the beginning of January, it's time for our first Crystal Of The Month post for 2017!

I've been working with Carnelian for the last little while, and I felt like it would be the perfect gem to use for January's Crystal Of The Month.

Carnelian is such a special crystal. It's beautiful red - orange hues are just mesmerizing. It reminds me of the deep colours of a sunset. For many people, carnelian is a stimulating stone, spurring them into inspired action. For me personally, Carnelian is soothing, soft and comforting. It is the quintessential sacral chakra crystal, and reminds me of how much power there is in surrendering and going with the flow. I often feel like I'm basking in a sea of support when I work with Carnelian. It's the reason why I always use it in my crystal layouts with my lovely Reiki clients! I love Carnelian for it's ability to lend courage and confidence to those who work with it. It supports the reproductive system and is wonderful for women who are looking to support their fertility, or mamas who are moving through the journey of pregnancy. Carnelian is amazing for new beginnings and for allowing abundance into one's life as well!

Like Amethyst, I feel like Carnelian is one of those all-around wonderful stones to have in your healing toolbox.

Let's get a little deeper into the beautiful healing properties of lovely Carnelian:

"Like the unexpected fire of a sunset, or the first flash of autumn brilliance, Carnelian captivates. Its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and joy that lingers, stimulating and empowering. 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."...

The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian "the setting sun." In its orange hues, they identified it with the receptive or passive female energies, and associated it with the fertile menstrual blood of the mother goddess, Isis. In its red, red-orange to reddish brown shades, they considered it the active male energy stone, recognized by its glowing vibrant color. Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire.

Orange stones, especially the carnelians, are excellent aids for training, coordination of physical exercise programs, and for balancing body energy levels. Carnelians boost a listless attitude and can stimulate the appetite.
