~ For physical energy, sexuality ~
Carnelian: This stone derived its name from the Kornel cherry, because of its bright color. The best qualities come from India, where the color is enhanced by exposure to the sun. It is a chalcedony with a hardness of 6.5 to 7.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say Carnelian is a stone which can powerfully activate the second chakra, for enhanced creativity and (in adults) heightened sexuality. It is said to be a good stone for bringing people who are "too spiritual" into an enjoyment and appreciation of the physical world.
