"Carnelian is associated with the sacral chakra. It activates the first, second and third chakras, bringing an influx of life force, sexual and creative energies, and assertive will. It is a powerful aid to those who wish to build their confidence, courage, passion and power. Carnelian is a stone of physical vitality and energy, and can act spiritually to help one regain one's strength after illness or injury. Wearing or carrying it can aid in awakening the vital energies of the three lower chakras, increasing zest for living and the willingness to take the risks inherent in all strong actions." - Robert Simmons The Book of Stones
