Carnelian is a variety of chalcedony, a mineral within the quartz family. It is valued for its vibrant orange to reddish-brown coloration.

  1. Color: Carnelian typically exhibits a range of colors from orange to reddish-brown. It can vary in intensity, with some stones being more vibrant and translucent than others.

  2. Hardness: On the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, Carnelian typically ranges from 6.5 to 7. This means it is relatively hard and can resist scratching and abrasion.

  3. Clarity: Carnelian can be translucent to opaque. In its finest quality, it may have a high degree of transparency, allowing light to pass through and showcase its color and internal patterns.

  4. Luster: The luster of Carnelian is typically described as vitreous, meaning it has a glassy or shiny appearance when polished. This luster enhances the stone's beauty and attractiveness.

  5. Density: The density of Carnelian can vary slightly depending on its composition and any impurities present. On average, it has a density ranging from 2.58 to 2.64 grams per cubic centimeter.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Many people use Carnelian to enhance their creativity and artistic expression. It is believed to stimulate the flow of creative ideas and inspiration. Despite its vibrant energy, Carnelian is also associated with grounding and stability. It can help anchor you to the present moment and provide a sense of stability during times of change or upheaval.
