Carnelian glows in warm translucent shades ranging from orange to reddish orange, with a very special burnished orange hue ideal for men's jewelry. The mysticism surrounding this magnificent gem dates back to the Egyptians, who believed it had special powers in the afterlife. Greeks and Romans considered carnelian to be protective, bringing good luck to those who wore it; they used the amber gem in rings and cameos. Regarded as an amulet, Indians feature carnelian surrounded in gold and silver pendants, electrifying a simple sterling silver choker necklace . Associated with action, carnelian stone jewelry makes an ideal gift for actors, singers, performers, speakers, musicians and athletes of all kinds. NOVICA's versatile collection showcases pieces exclusively carnelian, as well as in the company of gems like turquoise, citrine and pearls, creating fiery contrasts.
