Beautiful, fully polished, solid Carnelian Spheres of 687 grams/3435 carats together!
Carnelian is the Orange, red to brown variant of Agate. These pieces are deep and warm in colour and have all the hues of carnelian.

Carnelian was greatly appreciated by the ancient Egyptians and used as protective stone and healing stone, against anemia. They called Carnelian ' blood of Isis’. Isis is the Egyptian goddess of fertility, life and death. The ancient Greeks and Romans also liked Carnelian a lot. Carnelian was seen as symbol for the healing and warming effects of the sun. In the Islamic Middle East prayers were engraved in Carnelian; that would be a powerful protection against every possible doom. For centuries Buddhist monks in Tibet have been using Carnelian as a healing stone for headaches.

Attributed meaning and operation:

Carnelian stimulates the absorption of vitamins, nutrients and minerals and stimulates the metabolism, sexuality and fertility. Placed under the pillow, the carnelian helps you get to sleep and stay asleep and gives beautiful dreams. Carnelian solves stress and problems. Carnelian makes calm, purposeful and pragmatic. Carnelian helps you to accept life and death. The red carnelian gives energy, makes active, flexible and tolerant.

The pictures speak for themselves. They fit any mineral collection and any interior. A striking eye-catcher and a feast for the eyes!

Condition: Nicely cut and polished; very nice shape, colour and transparency; some crystallisation
Will be sent as Track & Trace parcel.
