The Magic of Wearing Red Gemstones

The color red is everywhere this Fall but did you know wearing red colored gemstones can enhance your wellbeing?  At Beksan Designs, we like to use the semi-precious Carnelian and Red Agate stones, both for their beauty and their healing benefits. Carnelian is the red, orange, or amber variety of Chalcedony. Though often a solid color, it may also be banded, in which case it would be jointly classified as both Agate and Carnelian.


We learned from the writers of that “Carnelian and Red Agate are the colorful quartz of the Chalcedony variety. It usually comes in red orange, pink, and brown color, and it’s often a translucent stone.  Ancient Egyptians regarded the carnelian as a sunset enclosed in stone and called it ‘the setting sun’.”


“These stones are particularly useful because there are certain events in your life that can unhinge you. Carnelian is a stabilizing stone, therefore, a perfect stone for women who lead very busy and sometimes chaotic lives.”  Sounds like lots of women we know, don’t you think?

These stones will keep you motivated, and you won’t run out of stamina. It’s a perfect stone for those who have demanding careers and need to churn out creative output on a regular basis, like women working in the arts, dance, music, or drama.


Carnelian is also a stone of truth, love, and faith, similar to Rose Quartz. If you want to have more honesty, more love, and more devotion in your life, this is the perfect stone for you. Carnelian stones also bring more positivity into one’s life. You will feel more energetic and optimistic, which makes it easier to overcome past traumas. They will also help you accept the natural cycles of life, like growing up and growing old, being a parent, raising kids, and dealing with the loss of people you love.


Along with these healing benefits, accessorizing in red adds color to your look. In clothing, we are seeing many red accents which makes a pair of earrings or necklace the perfect treat for yourself.  Imagine wearing a cornelian and leather necklace or a pair of red agate earrings! We also offer lovely red silk and pashmina scarves. Whether a ring, bracelet, earring or necklace, the magic of red gemstones will inspire you to look and feel beautiful.
