Carnelian is a form of chalcedony. This mineral stimulates analytical capabilities and precision. It provides energy conducive to the stabilization of energy in the home. The message of carnelian is that since one is love, there is nothing to do but offer the love--each offering of love bringing an exceptional increase in the quantity of love returned. Carnelian can be used to dispel apathy, indolence, and passivity. It also stimulates inquisitiveness and subsequent initiative. The energy of the stone is favorable with respect to cleansing negativity from other stones. When directed it provides for a clearing action while directing any negative energy, which is within the area, toward the light of transmutation. It is used to treat neuralgia, gall stones, kidney stones. Its energy supports the spine, spleen and pancreas. Carnelian is rare because it is difficult to find in large enough pieces to cut into spheres or eggs. Furthermore, it is also difficult to cut as it is a very hard stone.
