Carnelian is a beloved gem today as it was in the past. For centuries it has been considered the stone that protected from negative energies and diseases. Legends tell that carnelian protected even from the plague. Carnelian is also a stone with deep religious and spiritual charateristics: in the Bible, carnelian is mentioned as a decorative stone on the breastplate of Aaron and as one of the twelve precious stones that adorn the foundations of the city of Jerusalem. For Muslims, Carnelian is known as the “Stone of Mecca”, because of the carnelian seal ring worn by Muhammad.
