Carnelian is the birthstone of August. It increases energy, and adds endurance along with encouragement. It is also believed to still the blood and calm the temper. Carnelian is a flesh-red to brown-red, translucent to opaque type of chalcedony. Its red comes from iron within the stone.
Jasper is the birthstone of July. It is a powerful healer. It strengthens, grounds, and protects you from negative energy.
