 ChCarnelian is the captivating crystal of creativity, passion, and sexuality. In the words of Boy George – Carnelian is your lover, not your rival.

If the reddish glow of this gem isn’t enough to make you want to buy crystals online right now, we’re sure you’ll be scrambling to buy crystals online by the end of this blog.

Fun fact: Carnelian pendants and Carnelian tumbles sold like hot cakes in July! We think it might have had something to do with Virgo season being right around the corner and Carnelian being a Virgo birthstone. 

What is Carnelian?

Carnelian is a form Chalcedony which is a mineral of the quartz family and varies in colour from translucent to pale orange to red-brown. It’s probably no surprise that Carnelian is associated with the planet of mars and the element of fire.

The colour of Carnelian can vary between stones, thanks to the presence of traces of iron oxides within.

The fiery reddish-orange tones of Carnelian ooze emotional warmth, reinvigorate your motivation and vitality, and support your passionate endeavours.

Carnelian is a stabilising stone can be particularly useful to the Zodiac signs of Taurus, Cancer, Leo and Virgo.

History of Carnelian

While Carnelian comes in some boujee AF forms now – like pendulums, gridding points, and tumble stones, this stone is believed to have its humble origins in the Bengal region of India. Some of the uses of Carnelian over time include: 

India: Carnelian was incorporated into beautiful art, such as in the inner sanctum of the Taj Mahal.

Ancient Egypt: Carnelian was known as the “Blood of Isis.” Isis was the Goddess of Nature and Guide of Souls to the Underworld. They would place a Carnelian amulet with a deceased person, with the belief that Isis would take the soul safely to their next life.

Renaissance: It was also used in Renaissance magic to protect the wearer, as well as to protect a home from storms.

How Can Carnelian Help You?

Carnelian is a powerful stone that can support you to follow your passion in life through invigorating you with mental strength, vitality, motivation, and creativity to live your best life.

The stabilising traits of this stone help with the ability to trust yourself and your intuition, eliminate feelings of envy, and bolster your appreciation for life.


Carnelian has the power to help the Root Chakra (Muladhara) and the Sacral Chakra.

Root Chakra – Carnelian supports the Root Chakra by invigorating your energy – topping your soul cup back up when you feel sluggish and making you feel more stable. It also helps to stimulate muscles and oxygen flow through the body and can help with lower back issues.  

Sacral Chakra – Carnelian is the stone you need gives your libido some lovin’. It works to balance your Sacral Chakra to revitalise your creativity, pleasure, sexual desire, and self-esteem.
