This hot pairing features Carnelian and star Ruby slices, in yellow gold.
Carnelian is one of those stones that just stops you in your tracks. It has had this effect on us for millennia. Worn by ancient Egyptians and Romans.. warriors and priests.. supposedly by Napoleon and the prophet Mohammed... this orange-hued form of Chalcedony does wonders for the lower chakras.
It lights a fire in us.. inspiring creativity, courage, vitality, sexuality, and passion for life. It is useful in helping us overcome blockages in the form of past trauma, or areas where we hold a lot of fear.
The Ruby is a stone of nobility and passion, humming with strong, vibrant energy.. and imbued with a royal history. It is no surprise that it has been so highly valued over the centuries, having been worn by kings and queens, priests and shamans… Ruby has always been associated with love, and activates our lower chakras - Root and Sacral, as well as the Heart. It is said to boost Prana - or life-force energy.. making it an excellent tool for healing - and may bring a renewed sense of adventure or excitement to the wearer!
Ruby is a perfect stone for women, also.. and assisting with fertility, childbirth, and menstrual issues. It is a stone of life, of blood.
Star Ruby, in particular, forms in only one out of one hundred rough stones. The phenomenon is created when a drop of water is encapsulated in the corundum mineral, the result being this play of light on rutile fibers running through the stone. Ancient lore says they were created when a sunbeam fell in love with a star.
The unique and rare relationship between these crystals and the light makes them invaluable tools for introspection and inner journeying.
