FEATURED CRYSTAL/GEMSTONE 2 of 2 for FEBRUARY: Carnelian

A beautiful orange colored gemstone, Carnelian is linked both to the Root Chakra and the Sacral Chakra.  Carnelian's main qualities are energizing and grounding/centering. Carnelian also has protective qualities, and can fill one with warmth, joyful gratitude and a genuine simple happiness. It is a stone that activates one's flow of inner power and sexual energy flow, and is often recommended for women. 

The earthy and grounding carnelian comes in many colors, the most powerful ones being red and deep orange carnelian. As with any crystal or stone, there are benefits to be discovered by the proper use of rich and beautiful carnelian. 

As a healing stone it has long been believed to help cure diseases of the blood, as well as to stop nose bleeds.  It is said to aid in the elimination of toxins and waste products from the body, and has been used, in the form of an elixir, to help cuts and abrasions heal more quickly.
Carnelian helps fight negativity and depression, enabling us to look at the brighter side of life, bringing with it a feeling of optimism.  It is believed to help quell feelings of anger and annoyance, allowing for logical and clear thinking to rule our actions.
Carnelian is a grounding stone and also helps with stress-related problems - next time something makes your ‘blood boil’- think about reaching for some carnelian to help calm you down!  It is stone of courage and inspiration, helping us to overcome our fears - especially beneficial for those nervous of public speaking as it said to aid the speaker to be not only relaxed and confident, but more eloquent too (turquoise is the #1 stone for “communication” at the Throat Chakra). This also makes it an ideal talisman for actors and those involved with the theater.
Carnelian is both an energy booster and stabilizer, too. Although it does increase the energy flow in any space (or for any body) carnelian does it in a happy and calm kind of way. It is a joyful stone that feels very secure in its essence and transmits the same warmth, protection and inner security to its surroundings.

Feng shui-wise, carnelian is used for its energy activating and protective qualities. It is often used along with citrine in the so-called feng shui gem tree for wealth, as well as various bracelets and amulets. Carnelian is also associated with the flow of abundance.
