Description

Carnelian is a form of agate that is rich in deep reds and browns. Those coming from Afghanistan are appreciated for the luster and depth of tone. This strand is made up of large chunks of carnelian in their raw, unpolished form. Kind of a Flinstone look!


Average Dimensions:

Bead Size: 25 mm long
Strand Length: 16.25 inches (41.3 centimeters)

Please examine the photos carefully. We have made every attempt to get as close to the color as possible, but different monitors do interpret these colors differently. And, you will notice that the sizes of the beads do vary from strand to strand. Flaws, hairline cracks and uneven finishing is part of this handmade process.

Jewellery-art has a nice description on Carnelian properties which is quoted below.
Visit them at http://www.jewellery-art.co.uk/carnelian-gemstone-meaning.html.

Carnelian is the name given to a specific colour of agate. The word carnelian comes from the latin word for flesh (carnis). It applies to any agate that is red to dark orange to brownish in colour. Sometimes referred to as cornelion, it is found primary in India, and various sites around South America. Also found in Brazil, Australia, Russia and the US. Carnelian is a variety of chalcedony.

The most favorable pieces are deep-red to red-orange in colour. A moderately hard stone that is capable of taking a hard polish. Used for thousands of years - from the Egyptians, who filled tombs with carnelian, as they thought it had great power, and would help the souls journey to the afterlife.

Once classed as just the property of the noble classes, carnelian was often associated with social status.

Carnelian protects from bad vibrations, calms the temper, helps an insecure person find strength from within, helps with poverty, helps in focusing and in realising goals, aids decision making, helps to banish sorrow, gives a sense of humor, gives career success, helps in drama and theatrical productions, helps stop the flow of blood - helps to heal wounds and cures blood diseases, helps to increase physical energy, is an energy booster, recommended for infertility and impotency, increases sexual energy, and increases the appetite.

Looks like this stone does a lot! If you believe in these things, you might end up fat and rich, on a stage with a pile of kids, jumping around with a lot of energy and a smile of happiness on your lips. If you don't believe, at least you'll end up with a gorgeous strand of beads...

Working with artisans directly in the Peshawar region, your purchase helps support small workshops who work in traditions established over centuries in the Silk Road.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We prefer Pay Pal. Customers are given a three day grace period for payments, but immediate payments are deeply appreciated.

Returns & exchanges

I accept returns on any purchase for any reason. I believe not seeing the item right in front of you is the downside of buying/selling online, so I am happy to take things back that do not fulfill your expectations. I have had very few returns over the years and I work hard on photos and descriptions in order to describe the item as best as possible.

Returns must be done within 10 days of item receipt. I refund the purchase, but not shipping.

Shipping policies

I ship world wide and offer free shipping on purchases over $100. Multiple purchases are combined into one shipment.

Etsy has a system during the listing process where we have to estimate how much an item will cost in shipping if purchased with another item. This can be difficult given that I have a range of sizes and weights that could end up in a mix very different from the amount quoted. I refund the difference if it is over $.50 and often cover the expense if it's more than what was estimated, but every now and then, it might be too big of a difference. I can fit lots of the smaller items into a flat rate envelope, but on larger pieces, it would be best to ask about shipping if the total will be under $100.

International customers- I've had to revise this free shipping offer on heavier items- but I'll cover at least $20 on shipping.

Prices are quoted for USPS flat rate envelopes or priority mail, but I can ship snail mail if preferred. I use simple packaging, recycling when possible. I use Pay Pal's shipping services which provides a bar code and excellent tracking services, so I normally do not recommend insurance and confirmation, but can include it if requested. Customer pays for the extras.

International customers, we are not allowed to describe our packages as "gifts". I know it decreases your customs fees, but other sellers have gotten into trouble for that, so it's really not a good idea.
