The Alfonso lapidary suggests wearing Carnelian if you have a weak voice, as it energizes the throat. The stone staunched bleeding, especially in women whose menstrual flow was great, and it was pulverized for use as toothpaste, a cavity and gum healer. Modern crystal workers prize Carnelian for its ability to energize. It may benefit infertility, impotence, and frigidity. By the system of “like heals like,” its energetic signature calms inflammation, increases mineral assimilation, and lifts depression.



Carnelian stimulates courage and action. It restores motivation, energizes the soul body, and helps turn dreams into realities. With this stone, you can work an act of truly outrageous magic that transmogrifies the mundane world. For instance, use it to successfully apply for a dream job, for which you are not qualified, where you dramatically transform other people’s lives. Traditionally, Carnelian protected against envy. Eastern belief said that if you envied anyone’s possessions or wealth, your thoughts caused him to lose what you craved. This is useful karmic insight into the power of envy. Magnanimous Carnelian helps you be grateful for what you have and to give thanks for the good fortune of others, reinforcing universal abundance.
