Polished Carnelian Pyramid
This Carnelian Pyramid is a great example of high-quality Carnelian from Madagascar. The various shades of red due to the presence of iron oxide are said to still the blood, calm the temper and renew vitality. Carnelian is found throughout the world, the most renowned mines being in India, Brazil, Uruguay, and Japan.
Other cultures besides the Egyptians see meaning in the shape of the pyramid. The shape itself is very strong, being primarily made of stable triangles, and it has itself become a symbol of stability. An inverted pyramid symbolized spiritual development, as an individual became more aware of the broadness and fullness of life and spirituality. Mathematicians and alchemists find significance in the ratios of the height to the base or the lengths of the diagonals, and they can use the pyramid to solve the problem of "squaring the circle." Other people see the four sides as representing the four elements (wind, fire, air, and water) converging to a single point.
