More About Carnelian:

Carnelian Lore: 
The ancient Egyptians prized carnelian for reasons both practical and metaphysical. Since wax doesn’t stick to it, this form of chalcedony works well for seal. And its golden-red color reminded them of the sun setting over the desert, symbolizing the immortality of the soul. Carnelian often accompanies turquoise, the fiery qualities of the one balancing the air and water associations of the other. Egyptians personified these qualities through the fierce lion goddess Sekhmet and the mild Hathor, who sometimes appears as a cow.
Because of its color, carnelian was associated with the magical blood of Isis. The Egyptian Book of the Dead says the carnelian should be “dipped into...juice...then inlaid into the substance of the sycamore wood and put on the neck of the deceased.”
