Oh my goodness! The Carnelian you picked me for is perfect! It is exactly what I was hoping for. I love all of the stones that were picked to complement it as well. As always, I am very happy with my purchase.

Carnelian evokes the essence of “home” – that place where we can be ourselves and be loved for who we are. It encourages us to find the community of friends and family that will support us in our growth and that we in turn can serve.



Ethically Sourced

Carnelian from Botswana

This Carnelian comes from artisanal miners in Botswana. Artisanal mining for Carnelian and other Agates typically has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for miners.  Botswana is one of the few countries that has adopted environmentally friendly and sustainable mining practices. Botswana also has the safest mining standards in Africa.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Carnelian Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published May 2014  •  Updated February 2024  •  Read Time: 10 minutes
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.

    I am so happy to say that I got my *beautiful* crystals on Saturday!! Julie, they were so gorgeously packaged, I was in awe!! The care and attention you took was apparent and appreciated. You even put the info cards in alphabetical order!! The package was in my mailbox all morning with the sun out in full. I opened them around 11am, definitely time for them to get nice and warm. So when I opened everything, all the stones were warm to the touch and just felt so welcoming and comforting. I took a little video of them in my palm outside in the and they looked breathtaking!!!
