Modern, cabochon hunk of deep orange Carnelian. Cut 'en cabochon' (with a rounded, polished surface but not faceted) to reveal the depth of colour - we have added chunky, modern, oversized claws for an edgy look.
Carnelian is one of the oldest stones to be used in jewellery. Sumerian and Egyptian jewellery has been found dating back 4500 years. It was also favoured by the Romans for making those beautiful, signature intaglios.
The ancient birthstone for August Carnelian is considered the wealth stone, it stimulates courage and motivation and aids in emotional balance when faced with adversity.
