Carnelian or Cornelian

Before purchasing any kind of jewelry or beads, it is important to first understand their origin, nature, and features. So, let us dive into the fascinating world of this particular bead. 

Carnelian is a chalcedony type that contains iron oxide and silica. The former gives the carnelian bead its lovely orangish red hue. Meanwhile, sard is not the same as Carnelian, but quite similar. There is usually a greater resistance to touch. Hence, the two names can often be used interchangeably. Both carnelian beads and sard originate from Brazil, Germany, Siberia, and India. The former is also found in rock cavities in the United States. Large carnelian bead deposits can be found in the Great Lakes, Missouri, and Massachusetts. 

Carnelian beads can also be spelled cornelian. Both of these spellings are correct, with 'carnelian' becoming more famous following the 16th century. History scientists think the name must have been derived from 'cornum,' the Latin word, or cornel cherry, as it resembled the fruit.
