Consider gifting the fiery Carnelian quartz to your friends and family as unique gifts for any occasion. Let's learn all about what gives these rust-colored gems their vibrant color.
Carnelian is a red and brown variety of chalcedony stone with a clear to translucent make-up that gives this crystal a glossy, ethereal appearance. Carnelian gemstones get their fiery colors from ancient volcanic lava. As magma rises to the Earth's surface, rocks begin to form, and once cooled and hardened, the gasses escape from these rocks and crystals begin to take form. Before the magma rocks harden, the magma formation picks up other minerals over time. In the case of Carnelian, iron influences the rusty color of the gemstone. The Carnelian gemstones range in color from orange, red, brown, and sometimes include white banding.
