Carnelian is a warm and comforting stone

Carnelian Crystal

At Moonrise Crystals we believe that there’s a crystal for every person and every situation. This Carnelian was gifted to a very special person. They were nominated by someone who loves them very much.

There’s a veterinarian in a small town who saves lives. She cares for dogs, cats and other pets as you might expect; but she cares for people too. Sometimes that means comforting someone when their animal crosses the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes it’s bigger than that.

Once there was a young mother living in an abusive relationship. The man hurt her and hurt her dog too. The dog was so badly injured that it needed a $7,000 surgery or else needed to be put down. The young mother had no money and seemingly no choices. The kindhearted (and very wise) vet “adopted” the dog and made sure it got the lifesaving surgery. She then told the young woman, “I saved your dog. Now it’s your turn to save yourself and your daughter.” The young mother found the courage to leave and now she and her daughter are thriving!

The sister of that young mother wants the vet to receive a Feel Loved Crystal. Partly because she greatly admires her! Partly because the vet is currently grieving her own pet who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Their Stone

Carnelian is a warm and comforting stone. It helps us to understand and be at peace with the circle of life and death and to believe that we will see our loved ones again someday. It is a stone that evokes feelings of “home” and “community” a place where we are loved, supported, accepted, and valued. Carnelian challenges us to walk our talk and to be people of action and integrity. It inspires happiness, positive transformation and good health for our mind, body and spirit.
