Carnelian was symbolic of the warm blood of life and was thought to purify the blood of the wearer, and also to help relieve back pain.
Carnelian was one of the oldest gemstones mined in ancient Egypt and was used to make the Dyed pillar amulet, which was symbolic of the tree trunk in which the body of the god Osiris was assembled.
Ancient Egyptians believed that this amulet preserved and promoted the stability of its wearer.
Carnelian was also carved into heart amulets, which represented immortality and eternal life.
In ancient Egypt the stone was used to protect the living and the dead.
