Carnelian is a rust colored member of the chalcedony quartz family with a luster ranging from dull to silky. Although famous for its use in Roman antiquity, this stone is most commonly mined in Siberia, Brazil, and Germany. It is composed of silicon dioxide, but owes its color to the orange iron oxide deposits found dispersed within it.
