A strand of 20 gorgeous Warm Orange Carnelian Agate Beads bought from Hidir, a Bead Trader at the Koforidua Market where I found a lot of treasures. These beads are velvety to the touch, look quite opaque lying on the table but when you hold them up to the light they are translucent … quite stunning. The Beads are strung on string 32″ long. The beads vary in size but are about 15 x 48 mm. The strands vary slightly. In one strand some of the beads have a black swirl in them. If you would like a specific strand please contact us or you will receive one of the strands you see in the photo.
“Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history. A glassy, translucent stone, Carnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. … The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian “the setting sun.”
