About carnelian: A bright orange, reddish-orange, or reddish-brown colored gemstone from the Quartz family. Carnelian has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the property of the noble class. People holding a high social status were often buried with this gem stone. Carnelian (also sometimes referred to as cornelian) is found primarily in India, as well as various sites in South America. Carnelian nourishes and vitalizes your entire being, bestowing optimism and enthusiasm for life.
About Rhodochrosite: Rhodochrosite (whose name means rose-colored) is a very attractive mineral with an absolutely one-of-a-kind, beautiful color. The color of a single crystal can just astound the observer with its vivid pink-rose color that seems to be transmitted out of the crystal as if lit from within. The Incas believed that rhodochrosite is the blood of their former rulers, turned to stone, therefore it is sometimes called "Rosa del Inca" or "Inca Rose". Rhodochrosite is a self-confidence booster owing to bringing a sense of realistic balance to life. It is also used to help cope with problems in life in a graceful, balanced manner without avoidance or denial.
About chalcedony: The term chalcedony is derived from the name of the ancient Greek town Chalkedon in Asia Minor. Chalcedony, which is found worldwide, is the name for a group of stones made of a microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline variety of quartz, which means the quartz crystals are too small to be seen without high magnification. Native American Indians believed chalcedony was a sacred stone and used it in the spiritual ceremonies of the tribe. Chalcedony is a nurturing stone that promotes brotherhood and goodwill and will enhance a groups stability. This stone absorbs negative energy and then dissipates it so that the energy doesn't move to someone else.
