Carnelian is the light to dark red variety of the mineral chalcedony, which is generally colorless or light blue in its pure form. The red-orange color of carnelian is due to impurities, or micro-amounts of the element iron in its chemical structure. Metaphysically, carnelian is thought of as a creative stone, helping you translate emotions into creation. It is also believe to bring acceptance of the past and all of its challenges. This necklace can be a useful amulet to help overcome creative blocks, and help you embrace all of yourself.
SIZE: Two sizes are available, and a size comparison is shown in the 2nd photo. The large pendant is Approximately 1 1/4" x 3/4" and the focal point bead is 20mm in diameter. The smaller pendant is Approximately 1 1/8" x 5/8" with a 15mm focal point bead.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches.The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option.

CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Carnelian is a hard stone, so it can be cleaned in a solution formulated to nonporous gemstones and metals, such as Hagerty Jewel Clean to keep your silver bright. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
