Carnelian chips - Zayah

Carnelian is believed to be one of the oldest known gemstones.

Ancient Egyptians called it the "setting sun" The ancient Romans used  as a signet or seal rings for imprinting a seal on letters or important documents. It finds a mention in the Bible as one of the gemstones in the breast plate of Aaron.

Carnelian is seen as one of the luckiest gemstones. There is  an ancient proverb that says "No man who wore a carnelian was ever found in a collapsed house or beneath a fallen wall."
