Carnelian is a brownish red to orange variety of chalcedony quartz, colored by trace amounts of iron. Darker colors (red-brown to brown) are often referred to by the name Sard. Carnelian is one of the oldest gemstones, being widely used in ancient Rome to make signet or seal rings.
I bought a loose stone as a replacement for a lost center stone in my wedding ring, and I needed a very specific cut (oval) and specific dimensions. The product detail provided everything I needed, along with specific info on hardness and brilliance that was truly helpful in getting me to the right stone. It's really beautiful and just as promised/expected.
