These Vintage 12mm Rounds were procured in an estate purchase. 

The fiery hue of this round carnelian cabochon provides a dramatic and alluring touch to custom jewelry designs; due to its relative hardness, it serves as a great substitute for many softer gems which may often see wear, such as bangles and rings.

Carnelian is a variant of chalcedony that is semi-transparent to translucent in a striking reddish-orange color. This color is made possible due to its iron oxide content and may show a uniform hue or lightly striped. Its name draws from the Latin word for cherry, given the similarity of its shade to the fruit; carnelian is believed in folklore to empower eloquence in its wearer.

 

To evoke a more gothic aesthetic, pair it with black onyx.
