Therapeutic Properties of Carnelian

From Antiquity, carnelian has been worn in cameos in the belief that it will ward off insanity and depression.

In ancient Egypt, Carnelian was associated with the heart and resurrection of a mummy. In Oriental and Middle East countries, Carnelian was believed to protect you from the evil of envious persons. A same belief was held by people in the Middle Ages, who thought that Carnelian was a great protector. Carnelian was believed to protect you from those persons trying to read your mind, nightmares, enchantments, as well as guarding the home against lightning strikes and severe storms.

These days, carnelian is thought by some to enhance self esteem, to combat feelings of inadequacy, and to increase physical energy. It is sometimes used as a talisman to protect against fire and misfortune.

Carnelian is an important gemstone in opening a closed 2nd Chakra (Sacral). Natural healers use Carnelian to quell anger, jealousy and hateful feelings, clear negative energy and sorrow. Carnelian protects you against rage and fear. It increases sexuality and sexual desire and promotes courage and confidence.

Carnelian is associated with the solar plexus chakra (the yellow chakra), in which imbalances are thought to cause digestive problems, as well as lack of confidence.

Carnelian is useful for preventing fevers. It has the ability to increase the strength and glibness of speech. It is useful for blood problems. An amulet with a rich man holding some beautiful object, carved of carnelian, is said to be powerful in staunching the flow of blood. Carnelian balances creativity and mental processes.

Carnelian is the carrier of the orange ray. Useful for wheezing from allergies. Use natural carnelian (bright orange) if available. If natural gemstone is not available, you can use clear man-made carnelian. Wash carnelian under water after wearing it.
