Chakras: Root and Sacral
Zodiac: Taurus, Cancer, Leo and Virgo
This fiery reddish-orange stone is commonly found in Indonesia, Brazil, Eastern Europe and Peru but the best pieces are often in India. The colour can range from pale orange hues to intense reddish brown and black colourations with spots of grey, and pink. Carnelian stones emit raw and powerful energy that will give you courage and motivation and may even show you new paths or inspire creative endeavours you have been holding back on. This is also a great stone to use if you lack confidence in yourself and require trust and empathy to resolve negative energy and change your self-perception. Carnelian is also a great shield from envy, resentment, rage and can help you banish emotional anger and find love for life. Attuned to your lower chakras and especially to your Root and Sacral Chakra, Carnelian is best worn as a bracelet, or necklace and kept close to your lower body, where it can balance your creative and sexual energy. Holding this stone in your hand or resting on your navel or heart can transmit positive energies that begin to circulate within your aura. Using this stone regularly will help you transform into the individual you were put on this planet to embody.
