Carnelian Bracelets: Don't Leave Life Without Them

Ranging from translucent orange to hot reds, a bright carnelian almost reminds us of jelly candy. It has that same attention-grabbing boldness, that same smooth exterior, that same promise of sugary sweetness that makes our little hummingbird hearts flutter. Unfortunately, the latter is most definitely false. You can't eat carnelian, but you can certainly wear it! Personally, we go gaga for a pretty beaded bracelet.

Its alluring hue is said to give the wearer more courage, particularly when giving speeches. In fact, Napoleon Bonaparte wore a carnelian brooch into battle and later bestowed it unto his nephew as a token of protection (since the Emperor wasn't renowned for his generosity, we thought that was worth noting).

You might be interested in hearing that Napoleon found his gemstone in Egypt during that period when he attempted to invade the country to establish a trading enterprise (we all know how that worked out). The ancient Egyptians had a particular fondness for it and associated it with the goddess Isis, the protector of the dead. Their culture believed that a soul of a body surrounded by carnelian-even stored in a box near the sarcophagus- was granted safe passage into the afterlife. It didn't just stop there! They called it "the setting sun" and appreciated its fiery color in fashion, just as we do today.
