Here’s something totally different from Jade 🙂 A rich, deep red, inspired by an actual sample of Carnelian stone.

Carnelian-2

Going along with my theme of looking up stone meanings:

Carnelian (also sometimes referred to as cornelian) is found primarily in India, as well as various sites in South America. It is a variety of chalcedony. The most favorable pieces are a deep red to red-orange hue. Carnelian has a long and storied past, and was once considered strictly the property of the noble class. People holding a high social status were often buried with this gem stone. Source

Chrysocolla

Also a rich and varied colour, based off a gorgeous blue/green stone,

Chrysocolla Gemstone meaning
