PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Each batch includes between 9 to 15 pieces. Carnelian is an orange-coloured variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its colour varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals. It owes its red to reddish brown colour to colloidally dispersed hematite (iron oxide) The material occurs with banded patterns and white to peach coloured intrusive Quartz-like areas. Madagascar produces some of the best Carnelian in the world. Beautifully polished with some pieces having complex crystalline vug like features. Fissures and vug like features are often left in the material as not to waste during polishing. Colour intensity, and contrasting patterns are some of the main criteria used to grade the material. Over the past few years good quality carnelian has become hard to find in Madagascar!
