Carnelian gems are mostly mined from Australia, the United States, Brazil and Russia out of

all the other countries throughout the world. One of the most interesting properties of these

beautiful gemstones is that the bigger the bead the clearer it would be and the smaller the

bead the translucent it is.

The orange color of the beads is formed while heating agate crystals for a long time in order to create these

semi-precious stones. The theory of its nomenclature is again very interesting. The name Carnelian is derived

from a Latin word for horn. Because it sometimes exhibits flesh hue it is regarded as animal horn. The use of

carnelian is dated back to the Roman era, which was around two thousand years ago.
