This red stone was highly appreciated by the Ancient Egyptians and used as a protective stone and as a healing stone. Due to the warm Egyptian climate, carnelian often became very red, which made it even more associated with blood.
That is why the ancient Egyptians called this stone ‘The blood of Isis’. Isis is the Egyptian goddess of fertility, life and death. She is wearing a carnelian belt. Small amulets with this stone were given to the dead in order to guarantee the soul a safe journey to the kingdom of the dead.
