Carnelian is known as an energy stone. It's source is in creativity: creative solutions for problems, creative inspiration, quick creative starts to projects and creative completions. All this energy drives away lethargy, anxiety, sadness, addictions and procrastination. Best of all it improves our persistence especially in mundane situations, everyday situations that zap our well being. A very durable and beautiful stone it makes lovely jewelry and stone to skin is the best way to use it. It is one of my favorites.
