This Carnelian was heat treated to achieve the deep red color, however the crystal itself is natural.
The fourth Carnelian tower also contains Agate, hence the banding and differing colors.
Carnelian grounds you and helps to restore motivation and increase creativity. It gives courage and helps you to trust yourself and your perceptions.
Carnelian can be used to cleanse other crystals.
Placement: Wear as a pendant, or it can be placed by the doorways to your home to invite in abundance and invoke protection.
Sourced From*: Britain, India, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Peru, Iceland, and Romania.
*Please Note: I consciously source my crystals and do my due diligence to not knowingly source crystals from places where there is active conflict or inhumane working conditions. So, while this list may contain areas where there is conflict or inhumane working conditions, know that I do not knowingly purchase from those countries.
