Carnelian

Carnelian


 

A member of the Chalcedony species, Carnelian is thought to have been named after the color of the kornel cherry which it likens too. Orange to brownish-red with varieties having some translucency to opaque qualities. Iron contained within the stone gives it this coloring, but heat can enhance it too. Color within this stone is generally dispersed in cloudy patterns.
