2" Polished Carnelian Agate Worry Stone

 
This is a 2" polished, banded carnelian agate worry stone. The pictures are representative to the stone you will receive, but there is some variation in colors and patterning.

Carnelian is a semi-precious variety of chalcedony that features an orange or orange-red coloration. It's name is believed to come from the Latin word carneus, meaning 'flesh colored'. The reddish color is due to the presence of iron oxide impurities in the silica which makes up the chalcedony.

Carnelian is one of the oldest known gemstones. It was widely used in ancient Rome to make insignia and seals for imprinting on letters or important documents because hot wax does not stick to carnelian.

Worry stones are smooth, polished stones, usually in the shape of an oval with a thumb-sized indentation. They are often used by people for relaxation or anxiety relief purposes, the the same way as some people use a fidget spinner. Typically the worry stones are 1 1/2 to 2" across. They are may also be referred to as palm stones, thumb stone, fidget stones, etc.
