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-
