2.07" x 0.97" x 1.72" - 72g / 0.159lbs / 2.54ozCarnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral in the Quartz family. Its name is derived from its resemblance in color to the Kornel type of cherry. Carnelian’s color can vary from pale orange to deep red orange. Sometimes the material is banded in varying shades. Carnelian and all kinds of Chalcedony differ from Jasper (another Quartz mineral) in that the Quartz in Chalcedony is arranged in fibrous layers rather than the sugar-like grains found in Jasper.
