Benefits of Wearing a Therapeutic Carnelian Necklace

Carnelian carries the orange color ray. The orange ray nourishes and vitalizes your entire being, bestowing optimism and enthusiasm for life. At the cellular level, the orange ray motivates cells to achieve greater health. On the whole-person level, it inspires you to make the changes that will move you toward your life's goal or dream.

When you wear a necklace of Carnelian spheres, their orange-ray energy radiates into your aura. From there, the orange ray is breathed into your lungs and distributed throughout your body via the blood and lymph.

The orange ray is a key ingredient for life, especially for the life of the cells. Each individual cell bathes in glory in the presence of the orange ray. Cells need all seven color rays for life. However, when given even a little extra orange ray, they react the way you might when you soak in a hot bath after a hard day's work—you rest and relax, and although you continue to function, you let go of your troubles. Carnelian and the orange ray help your cells let go of their disharmony and disease. They stir and dislodge disharmony so that your body can release it.

Emotions also relax in the presence of the orange ray. This relaxation manifests as calmer, more balanced emotions. Excess emotions are checked, and deficient emotions are brought to life, while others are soothed and smoothed. Negative emotions are not in harmony with the orange ray. Therefore, when Carnelian is worn, negative emotions are dulled, dissipated, or canceled out. Carnelian also helps you express positive emotions more easily.

Carnelian accentuates your memories of joyful and positive experiences. It also highlights positive reasons for living. Carnelian helps you appreciate all the gifts of life. When you wear Carnelian, even in the midst of unhappiness and negative circumstances, the good things are highlighted.

Carnelian stimulates, sharpens, and enhances mental functions. It improves mental clarity, memory, and the ability to see things from a higher viewpoint. When you first wear Carnelian, it stirs up the clouds that inhibit mental clarity. Consequently, you may notice that your clarity seems to decrease, and your sinuses and lymph glands may become somewhat clogged. This effect won't last long. Carnelian teaches the body to metabolize these clouds. As more and more clouds are metabolized and eliminated, your clarity will increase and then surpass what you experienced before putting on the Carnelian. You will also gain the strength to help you accept the many changes this increased mental clarity will initiate in your life.

Carnelian will benefit anyone who is deficient in the orange ray. An orange-ray deficiency frequently manifests as weakness in the immune, endocrine, or lymphatic systems. It can also manifest as an imbalance between lower and higher energies, and this may express itself as a disparity between one's dreams and aspirations and one's actual life direction. When you wear Carnelian, the lower and higher energies in your body will come into greater harmony with each other. This will encourage your aspirations and current life path to come closer and closer together. As your life begins to move in the direction you desire, you will be infused with a new sense of vitality and joy for living.

Carnelian and the Lymphatic and Endocrine Systems

Each of the seven color rays of the life force is particularly healing and nourishing to certain aspects of the physical body. The orange ray nourishes and supports the lymphatic system, soft connective tissue, endocrine system (glands), and adipose tissue. Consequently, wearing Carnelian can help strengthen these parts of the body and help resolve certain conditions related to them.

Time Guidelines

It is best to wear Carnelian continually, especially if you are wearing it to increase your mental clarity.

Therapeutic Quality Carnelian

Carnelian's quality is easy to judge with the naked eye. A microscope is not necessary and a light table may even be deceiving. With Carnelian, color is more important than clarity. Nonetheless, to be therapeutic, Carnelian must be free of any rock matrix or non-Carnelian inclusions. The Carnelian should not appear muddy or dull. Cracks, even small ones, should be avoided, because they disrupt the emission of the Carnelian's frequency.

The color of a Carnelian sphere as it is visible to the naked eye in sunlight is a true representation of the energy it will give to its wearer. To judge Carnelian's true color, it must be held up in ambient sunshine outdoors and not directly in front of the sun. In this respect, Carnelian is different from some other gemstones: any light source placed directly behind Carnelian makes it appear lighter than it really is. Carnelian color should be as consistent as possible throughout the sphere and, ideally, true to the pure orange seen in a rainbow.

Such Carnelian is not plentiful. For many people, this optimal Carnelian color may actually provide too strong an influx of orange ray. Therefore, in most cases, using the Carnelian with a slight hint of red coloring is recommended; it emanates a degree of orange ray that is in balance for most people. The more commonly available, dark red-orange Carnelian is not therapeutic.

Well-formed spheres and neat drill holes are also vital to Carnelian's effectiveness. Irregularly shaped or improperly drilled spheres diminish the strength with which Carnelian can express its frequency into the aura.

Introducing Precious Carnelian

It is our joy to introduce you to a very special gemstone: precious Carnelian. This Carnelian fulfills our long-held desire to offer a precious-gem carrier of the orange color ray and Carnelian energy. The orange ray nourishes and vitalizes your entire being, bestowing optimism and enthusiasm for life and energizing every cell in your body. This new, precious Carnelian is an exceptionally pure, potent, and high-vibration vehicle for the life-giving orange ray.

The Generous Earth

We feel especially fortunate that the Earth has yielded this rare gem now, when other qualities of therapeutic Carnelian have become increasingly scarce. Treatments that render Carnelian non-therapeutic have become so common, that our ability to offer our usual semi-precious Carnelian has become more and more limited. And we simply refuse to offer anything less than therapeutic-grade gems.

And so, some years back, we started searching for a consistent source of the very highest quality Carnelian. However, these precious gems had never been available in large enough quantities to make even a single necklace. That is, until now. Our new Carnelian is indeed so uncommon, that it takes 8,000 carats of very high quality "rough" Carnelian to create one 80-carat precious necklace. Although these new, precious Carnelian necklaces contain less mass than our semi-precious Carnelian necklaces, they are much more powerful energetically.

The Story of Precious Carnelian

Why is this new Carnelian so therapeutically potent? Understanding what makes it special requires a brief look at Carnelian's origins. As readers of Michael Katz's book, Wisdom of the Gemstone Guardians, know, human beings are intimately involved in creating Carnelian. All Carnelian is made by heating chalcedony (often gray chalcedony), usually at high temperatures for a long time, until it turns orange. In addition, other treatments, such as iron oxide, are often used to further deepen the gems' color.

Our new Carnelian is different; in fact, it is virtually unique. It originates as a light-yellow chalcedony and is transformed into Carnelian through a particularly gentle and natural process. The rough gems are placed in an earthen pot and heated on wood at a very low temperature for about 24 hours. Nothing else is added, except some additional wood to keep the temperature consistent. This mimics the natural heating that takes place in the Earth.

The result of this gentle transformation process is Carnelian that is extraordinarily rare, therapeutically powerful, and beautifully translucent—the purest vehicle for the orange ray available on Earth.

Choosing Precious Carnelian

Our new precious Carnelian is literally in a class by itself. For that reason, we have graded it for therapeutic quality on its own scale, separate from that of our semi-precious Carnelian. The therapeutic-quality grades of precious Carnelian begin where semi-precious Carnelian leaves off. So, for example, a "Fine Quality" precious Carnelian is more therapeutically potent that an "Exquisite Plus" semi-precious Carnelian. Hence, when you order our Carnelian online (click here), you will find our precious and semi-precious Carnelian in separate ordering charts.
