    Here's another little goodie I picked up today from Volunteer's of America. This one actually fits my ring finger. The band is elaborately chased and detailed and set with a beautiful translucent Carnelian. Rather substantial at 12 grams but very comfortable to wear it's quite capable of leaving a mark if fists were to fly.
    Carnelian's metaphysical properties are: Emotional warmth, Sociability, Creativity, Individuality, Memory, Appreciation of nature, Harmony, Courage, Happiness, Self-esteem, Rebirth, Reincarnation, and Past life recall...sounds like I found the answer to all my problems and then some...lol. -Mike-

    Carnelian Healing Properties
    Courtesy of charmsoflight.com

    Carnelian is a variety of Chalcedony. A silica of very fine intergrowths of Quartz and Moganite. Agate, Onyx, and Chrysoprase also belong to this family of semi-precious gem stones. Carnelian is a 17th Anniversary gemstone.
    Chakras - Base Chakra, Sacral Chakra
    Zodiac - Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo
    Planet - Mars
    Element - Fire
    Typical colours - Clear-to-translucent reddish-brown which may vary from a pale orange, to an intense almost-black.

    A stabilizing stone, Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success. Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind. It helps in trusting yourself and your perceptions. It overcomes negative conditioning and encourages steadfastness. Carnelian improves analytic abilities and clarifies perception. It sharpens concentration and dispels mental lethargy. Protects against envy, rage and resentment. Calms anger, banishes emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life.
    Carnelian treats lower back problems, rheumatism, arthritis, neuralgia and depression. It regulates the kidneys, and accelerates healing in bones and ligaments. Improves vitamin and mineral absorption and ensures good blood supply to organs and tissues.

      Your new Mood Ring - when you're mad, it leaves a big red mark on somebody's forehead....

      :-)))))

      So true Bonnie but what happened to the sociability and emotional warmth end of the deal....lol :)
    3. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      So hilarious Bonnie!!!

      For some reason I thought carnelian was a Scorpio gemstone. Maybe why it hasn't worked for me....ha ha - too wound up to let it calm me down?
    5. mikelv85 mikelv85, 4 years ago
      I think it would still work for us Val even if we are Scorpios...lol. :)

      Thanks Thomas :)

      Nice looking ring, Mike. Something that even I might wear! [;>)

      I really like this Mike. I love carnelians (even if they do nothing for my creativity and harmony lol) and the silver mount is really interesting. great find!

      Thanks Kiyoshi and Karen...it really is an impressive ring and I love wearing it but I'm afraid I'll smack the stone against something and crack it. So I won't wear it everyday, just now and then to show it off. :)

      Great ring. I love Bonnie's comment. Too funny!!!!!!
    11. mikelv85 mikelv85, 4 years ago
      Thanks Scott...I used to have an English teacher who would turn his ring around and thump you in the head if you weren't paying attention. Don't think you could get away with that today...lol :)

      I remember the street vendors in Toronto used to sell these types of rings as cheap as 10 dollars, but that of course was about 1976-80. I have a gold eagle with the detail is quite dangerous. You got yourself a beautiful ring.
    15. mikelv85 mikelv85, 4 years ago
      Thanks Phil....so I now know it's not that old but it sure is beautiful and I got it for the vintage price too. :)

      Yours may be older but it is hard to tell, esp when you get it cleaned !
    17. davyd286, 4 years ago
      I don't see any chasing on that ring . It looks cast from a mold.
    18. mikelv85 mikelv85, 4 years ago
      OK :)
