Carnelian is a stabilising crystal, perfect for anchoring in the present. Its high energy may help restore lost vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity for new pursuits. It may improve concentration and remove extraneous thoughts in daydreamers, and during meditation. This stone also protects against envy, rage, and resentment – yours, or from others, and encourages a love of life. It is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind, helping you to trust yourself and your perceptions.
