This is truly a gorgeous specimen. The colors and patterns remind me of feathers made of fire--to rise up and fly confidently from the ashes.
Carnelian is your motivation and vitality stone. If you are working towards a health or fitness goal, or want to dive into a project you're ready to launch, this is your go-out-and-get-it stone. It has such an abundance of energy it cleanses any rocks in its vicinity, and will sometimes need to be charged itself. This stone is one of confidence and physical energy.
