    Carnelian, or cornelian as it is also known, is a member of the chalcedony family of gemstones. Iron oxide impurities are responsible for carnelian’s deep rouge array of colour. Carnelian acts as an umbrella term for related gemstones with varying red shades, from darker jasper to lighter sardonyx. Ancient folklore suggests cornelian was thought to heal physical wounds and impede bleeding.
