Carnelian is the red variety of agate containing various iron compounds. It is a powerful motivation stone and has been called the "self-esteem" stone. It assists in focusing on the present, stimulates appetite, concentration, emotions, passion, and physical energy.
Pendulums have been used for ages for divination and determining the answer to any question which the rational mind cannot perceive. This is accomplished by allowing the body, through a process known as "muscle testing," to determine the outcome. Simply ask a question to which you know the answer to determine which circular or horizontal/vertical "+" motion is yes or no. Get relaxed, then ask your question!
Please note that due to natural variations in gemstone deposits, the pendulum you receive may not be identical to the one pictured.
