Carnelian (aka Cornelian, Sard)

Carnelian was known and used in ancient Egypt. I saw it on one of King Tut's sarcophagi myself and in other things in his tomb (i.e., dagger, uraeus [crown]). Turquoise and Lapis Lazuli were also used. Carnelian's lovely orange color makes it a wonderful Navel Chakra crystal, and it is useful to combat depression! Carnelian Agate connects us with the Earth and the Universe. This crystal is most effective on the Navel or Sacral (Root) Chakra but also works well on the Solar Plexus Chakra and the Heart Chakra.

This crystal helps you find your place in the world. It is a crystal of protection and guards you against envy, fear, and rage as well. Carnelian brings inspiration to you from the spiritual world. It helps you feel energy coming into you and helps you deal with sorrow when it is present. In combination with Chlorite (i.e., Seraphinite, Green Chlorite in Quartz) and Ruby Crystals, it will eliminate psychic attack and also free a geographic area of spirits still bound to the earth. These three crystals can also be used in a grid to protect you and your environment from a return of those negative energies.

Crystals are a very large part of my life, and I am lucky enough to be surrounded by crystals! When a crystal is touching you all of the time, you are getting the energy of the crystal constantly. I wear several pendants, so I literally wear my medicine bag around my neck. I think this is the very best use of a crystal! Healing crystals do not do you a lot of good if they are sitting on a shelf. You should be touching them as much as possible! Working with them by holding them in your hand or placing them on your body is good, too, as is holding a crystal during meditation.

When my life is about to change, I usually know it is coming, because I feel a very strong need to change my pendants. When I no longer need to wear a pendant or other piece of jewelry, they sometimes literally fall off my body. Over the years, I have worn many different combinations of crystals, and I have enjoyed them all. I seem to wear at least six pendants, but it has been as many as twelve at times. Jewelry is an excellent way to work with your crystals!

Prices are subject to change without notice.  I do my best to accurately describe all of the crystals I list for sale and to describe any "flaws", but I am imperfect in all things!
