Carnelian holds powerful energy dating as far back as ancient Egypt and believed to be magic armor for life after death (a custom described in the Egyptian Book of the Dead).

This crystal is a form of quartz from the chalcedony family and it’s orange hue comes from deposits of iron, which makes it one really powerful crystal to work with for passion. The hues of orange can range from very light to dark red and may contain lines and variations of patterns.

Carnelian was worn around the necks of ancient warriors as amulets of protection and for building courage.
Carnelian is commonly associated with The Empress card of the Tarot for passion and creativity. It’s correspondence to Ostara is to bring motivation, focus, and stimulation. Ostara is observed and honored during The Spring equinox and opens us up for the passion of fire as the Sun brings us more day light hours and warmer weather. It’s the season of fertility when sensuality is celebrated.
