Carnelian Beads

The origin of the name Carnelian is ancient and mysterious. The name Carnelian could be derived from the Latin word "carne", which means “flesh”. Another theory claims that the “cornel” cherry could be the source of the name. There is also a similar-sounding Persian word meaning yellow-red. Carnelian has been utilized for decorative arts for at least 7,000 years! Egyptian tombs are full of examples of carnelian jewels because the ancient Egyptians believed that carnelian amulets would ensure a safe passage into the afterlife. Carnelian was also highly valued by the ancient Greeks and Romans, who used it for signet rings.

Our carnelian beads possess a rich, deep, orange-red color. Darker, more consistent orange carnelian is heat-treated to ensure the beauty and longevity of the color. The faceted cuts have an incredible eye-catching sparkle. If you're looking for carnelian with more color variation, check out our natural carnelian beads. Carnelian is a variety of chalcedony (microcrystalline/cryptocrystalline quartz). Its translucent, orangey-red coloration is primarily due to the presence of iron oxide.

Carnelian is an alternative birthstone for August. Metaphysically, it is believed to enable confidence and creativity.
