Ancient Yin-Yang Carnelian Bead

  • This one-of-a-kind ancient carnelian bead comes from DharmaShop founder, Sander Cohen's curated collection of specialty beads from Nepal and Taiwan.
  • Ancient carnelian beads like this one were often used not only for decoration, but also as protection amulets to shield the wearer from negativity or evil.
  • The age of this carnelian bead is estimated to be between 600 and 1,000 years old.  Hand strung at the DharmaShop on an adjustable sterling silver chain.

We have never come across a bead like this one before!  It features a bilateral color scheme that is simply exquisite.  This contrast of light and dark presents a strong and tranquil yin-yang design and carries with it a meaningful message of interconnectedness and balance.  The bead also features a small chip on the orange side.  This is considered auspicious and a reflection of the beads age and authenticity.

Carnelian is a Sacral Chakra stone that promotes confidence and creativity, giving you the courage to make positive life choices.  It is believed to protect the wearer from negativity and restore self-esteem and joy.

Adjustable necklace measures approximately 22 inches around and can be tightened as desired.  Bead measures just under 0.5 inch long and 0.25 inch wide.
