When life demands bold action, Carnelian comes in hot. This fiery variety of Chalcedony is a holy grail (i.e. must have) stone that resonates with the hot cauldron of the lower three chakras. Orange to blood red Carnelian aligns you with your gut, circulating vital energy or life force to your most powerful creative instincts and sexual desires.
Carnelian is the anti “can’t.” When we are faced with core-rattling fear—and, c’mon, who isn’t—Carnelian is a powerful, battle-axe swinging, flame throwing wingman. Overcome the terror of being, and anything is possible. Everybody is a something-phobe. Whether it’s fear of intimacy, commitment, failure, or missing out, Carnelian can will us over the dreaded humps, motivating us to put the most important plans into action with “I got this” confidence and “mess with me” swagger.
