Location of Gem Origin: Madagascar
Carnelian is a special representative of the Chaldecon family: When it is formed from hydrothermal solutions in volcanic rocks, the silicic acid must have a high
water content, otherwise the colouring iron oxide does not finely divide to give the stone its colour, but is eliminated instead.
In addition to the intense colour and interesting structures, the mineral's popularity in the manufacture of jewelry can be explained primarily by its low hardness. In the Middle Ages,
numerous signet rings, such as that of Martin Luther, were carved from carnelian.
