These sweet little Carnelian hearts will turn any house into a home. They come from northern Madagascar and were handmade in a woman-owned polishing factory. Each one is a vibrant orange that fits snugly in a fist. They're puffy fat hearts, mostly opaque but with occasional translucency. These would be great for laying-on-of-stone, especially for someone working who is working on self-confidence. Carnelian is an enthusiastic cheerleader that reminds us that we are loveable just the we are and believes that we can do anything we put our minds to.

Ethically Sourced Carnelian

Know where your crystals come from

This Carnelian comes from artisanal miners in Boeny, Madagascar. Artisanal mining for Carnelian and other Agates typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary hand polishes stones in Antananarivo, Madagascar. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at one major gem show in the United States. Every year the lapidary takes on a major charity project at a rural school. Previous projects have included installing bathrooms, creating a playground, and building a sunshelter for parents.

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar. In 2022, we plan to build a library with books in Malagassi and French.

Carnelian Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Carnelian is a vibrant orange crystal that has been delighting people since the time of the Pharaohs in ancient Egypt.  It was first described as having powerful energy in the legendary funeral texts, The Book of the Dead.  Carnelian is sometimes characterized as a Chalcedony, especially when it is a solid orange color, and sometimes as an Agate, especially if its striped with white bands.  During ancient times, it was mined in Mediterranean countries, but today, most Carnelian comes from Botswana, Brazil and India.  It has a happy energy, that can be playful or protective.  It makes a wonderful housewarming gift, its energy helping change a house into a home.
