Carnelian: named the “Sunset Stone” by ancient Egyptians because they believed it caught and reflected the heat of the sun and channeled it into the wearer. Carnelian chips bookend rustic Carnelian rectangle beads to make this pair of Carnelian Sunset Leaf Charm Dangles a truly unique pair of earrings.
My other half (the “owitz” in Chafowitz), brought the rectangular Carnelian gemstones back from a trip to Wyoming. I loved them the minute I laid eyes on them! The rough cut and natural flaws in the stones provide a look that is charmingly simple and unsophisticated.
I can just see myself out in the countryside, watching the sun getting lower and lower in the sky. Feeling the warmth of it being trapped by the stones, the heat being channeled onto my face and into my mind.
Just imagine; can you feel the heat, too?
