Carnelian symbolizes bold energy, warmth and joy that lingers as much as it empowers and stimulates. Artifacts using carnelian date back to the island of Crete during the Bronze Age circa 1800 BC.
Romans believed carnelian promoted courage, confidence and strength. In ancient Egypt, carnelian was placed on mummies to assist in their journey to the afterlife.
The genie is a popular motif in jewelry, representing growth, opportunity, spirituality and magic. The genie conveys the vast potential for growth latent within all of us, our natural desire for individuation.
