Carnelian gems are mostly mined from Australia, the United States, Brazil and Russia out of all the other countries throughout the world. One of the most interesting properties of these beautiful gemstones is that the bigger the bead the clearer it would be and the smaller the bead the translucent it is.
The orange color of the beads is formed while heating agate crystals for a long time in order to create these semi-precious stones. The theory of its nomenclature is again very interesting. The name Carnelian is derived from a Latin word for horn. Because it sometimes exhibits flesh hue it is regarded as animal horn. The use of carnelian is dated back to the Roman era, which was around two thousand years ago. As hot wax does not stick to carnelian, this material was used for making seals or signets for seal imprinting with wax for important and confidential documents.
These beads are believed to possess supernatural and holistic powers. According to believers, this gemstone changes the whole perspective of a wearer. It helps in purifying blood and also plays a vital role in healing the wounds. Not only in one’s lifetime but these beads are also believed to hold majestic powers in the afterlife.
The most popular and expensive type of carnelian beads is the handcrafted kind because of its exquisite and fine nature. While carving these beads extreme care and caution are taken in order to maintain the quality and texture of the gemstone.
The most popular and loved form of jewelry made of the carnelian beads amongst people is the necklace.
