Carnelian Heart from Madagascar
These are beautiful, 2" wide, hand-polished pieces of Carnelian from Madagascar. The entire specimen has been shaped and polished into the shape of a heart.
Carnelian, a beautiful orange-red crystal, derives its name from the cornel cherry due to the similarities between their alluring red shades. A form of chalcedony (a silica crystal composed of quartz), carnelian differs from this mineral because of its famed reddish tints, resulting from iron oxide impurities within the chalcedony structure.
Measurements: 2.5" x 2" x 1".
Please note that due to natural variations in the mineral, the heart you receive may vary slightly from the heart shown.
