Also called “red agate,” carnelian crystals might remind you of the setting sun. Their colors range from a translucent yellow-orange to rich reds and deep, semi-opaque rusty browns or scarlet. Carnelian’s range of hues comes from iron oxide, and the stone is one of the most popular types of chalcedony crystals. A lot of people are attracted to its energy, especially when they want to invite a little more “zip” into their life or renew their creative spirit.
How Carnelian Connects with the Energetic Body
The metaphysical body identifies with specific colors for each chakra. So carnelian crystals are a natural choice when you want to heal or connect with your sacral chakra, which corresponds with the color orange. But you can also find carnelian working on your root chakra, and even the heart chakra too. The stone is often associated with fertility and childbirth, as well sexual energy. Ancient Egyptians even believed that carnelian had meaningful ties to the mother goddess Isis.
This is definitely a crystal for embracing the divine feminine. Since the strongest element with carnelian crystals is fire, you might consider working with carnelian to tap into a renewed sense of passion and confidence in your relationships. The stone can also become a tool for boosting your internal motivation or overall stamina. By tapping into the sacral chakra, the center for personal desire, carnelian empowers us to pursue new interests and take on new challenges.
