So, what makes carnelian so special?

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT CARNELIAN?

Carnelian is both an energy booster and stabilizer, too. Although it does increase the energy flow in any space (or for any body) carnelian does it in a happy and calm kind of way. It is a joyful stone that feels very secure in its essence and transmits the same warmth, protection and inner security to its surroundings.

The energy of carnelian resembles a peaceful, warm afternoon filled with genuine happiness. Its joyful energy has a nourishing and protective quality to it. Carnelian has courage, confidence and creativity at its core; all these qualities being combined in a calm and grounded kind of way.

WHERE DOES CARNELIAN COME FROM?

Carnelian is found in many places which makes it very affordable. Most of carnelian on the market comes from India, Britain, Iceland and Peru.

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC FENG SHUI PROPERTIES OF CARNELIAN?

Carnelian's main qualities are energizing and grounding/centering. Carnelian also has protective qualities, and can fill one with warmth, joyful gratitude and a genuine simple happiness. It is a stone that activates one's flow of inner power / the sexual energy flow and is often recommended for women.

Feng shui-wise, carnelian is used for its energy activating and protective qualities. It is often used along with citrine in the so-called feng shui gem tree for wealth, as well as various bracelets and amulets. Carnelian is also associated with the flow of abundance.

WHERE DO I PLACE MY CARNELIAN FOR GOOD FENG SHUI?

The best feng shui bagua area for the placement of carnelian is the Love & Relationships area (Southwest area of a home or office. Two carnelian hearts can be a wonderful enhancement of energy in the love area.

Second best placement is the Health & Family area (East bagua area if you apply the classical feng shui bagua). You can also place your carnelian in the feng shui money area.

If you are working with the BTB bagua, then your placement will be different because these two areas are defined differently. (Here's the BTB bagua).

WHAT FORM OF CARNELIAN SHOULD I CHOOSE?

Depending on your needs, you can choose either carnelian tumbled stones, or use carnelian in various shapes such as hearts, balls, or specific feng shui carvings such as Buddha, the Dragon and Phoenix, the Mandarin Ducks, etc.

One of the best uses of carnelian is in jewelry. One can always benefit from the warm, joyful and energizing presence of this stone, be it in a bracelet, ring or a necklace. Carnelian can create an exquisite quality of energy when combined with most light blue colour stones, especially blue lace agate, turquoise and amazonite.

If neither jewellery nor feng shui amulets appeal to you, you can also just carry a small carnelian tumble stone in your pocket or purse.
