Celebrate the month of July by wearing a PANDORA charm with the carnelian gemstone! Mined in India as early as the fourth century BC, the carnelian gemstone received its name from a type of cherry with a similar orangish-red hue. Because hot wax does not bind to this gemstone, it was often used in ancient Roman culture as a signet or seal ring for letters. Carnelian is said to provide courage, comfort, and protection to the wearer. Please contact our store for more information our July birthstones.
