Red Carnelian Gemstones
Carnelian Gemstone is a variant of the mineral silica (quartz), the basic constituent of sand (Si02). The presence of iron oxide gives its characteristic red colour. The stone has been used to make everything from weapons from jewellery since ancient times, as far back as the Bronze and Stone Ages. Sumerians, Egyptians and even the early Greeks and Romans were huge fans of this particular mineral. The colour of the carnelian is typically yellowish-red.
In ancient times, the stone was used for a variety of symbolisms. It was used to display the signs of success of war because it was associated with the blood of the victors. The stone has also been associated with fertility and potency. The gemstone can be enhanced to improve properties like texture and colour.
