Carnelian activates the first, second and third chakras, bringing an influx of life force, sexual and creative energies and assertive will.” -The Pocket Book of Stones
From HausMagick: “A wise young witch told me I could use carnelian as a candle substitute in spell-work, because there is so much fire in this reddish-orange beauty. Which is precisely why I like it for warming up a space energetically. With its swirls of red, orange and brown, carnelian can wake you up like a spark, yet keep you feeling grounded and safe at the same time. It's going to help you feel comfortable without being lazy or complacent."
