This necklace is dedicated to creativity, motivation, endurance, leadership and courage. These are associated with Carnelian stones. The necklace has thirteen ancient Carnelian stones which in ancient times were worn by Egyptian master architects to show their rank of builder, and alchemists of the Middle Ages used it as a boiling stone to activate the energy of other Chalcedonies. The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian “the setting sun.” In its orange hues, they identified it with the receptive or passive female energies, and associated it with the fertile menstrual blood of the mother goddess, Isis. In its red, red-orange to reddish brown shades, they considered it the active male energy stone, recognized by its glowing vibrant color. Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire.
The pendant is made from a rare Beaver tibia bone fossil that was found in the bottom of a river in Florida. Beavers symbolize many of the same traits as Carnelian such as motivation, endurance, creativity and courage. The rest of the necklace has Baltic Amber beads from Lithuania and handmade Cameroon copper bicone beads from Egypt. The toggle clasp is handmade copper patina from Mykonos, Greece.
Approximately 21 inches (53.3 cm) long.
