Carnelian is Said to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck. A talisman for success in any money-making venture. In the workplace, a crystal of ambition, drive and determination. Wards off undue pressures of co-workers or impersonal corporations with unrealistic expectations. Carnelian is traditionally known to guard against falling masonry and accidents with tools. Today it guards the home from theft, fire, storm or accident.
Lends the courage needed to help overcome difficulties and defend a cause. Promotes idealism, a sense of community and pragmatism. Orange crystals, in particular, are fertility and potency symbols and are linked with conceiving a child. Carnelian of either color may help in rekindling passions that might have faded in an otherwise loving relationship.
