A stone from the quartz family, carnelian is found all over the world but it is widely held that the best stones come from India. The name is derived from the Latin word for horn. Carnelian is said to help the wearer “live in the moment” as well as restoring the natural energy flow of the body.
Carnelian is the gemstone given to mark 17 years of marriage. Alternatively, watches are often given as a gift in recognition of this milestone.
