Carnelian is chalcedony colored by iron oxide impurities. It's usually a reddish-brown color, but it can range from pale orange to nearly black.
Chalcedony is composed of alternating crystals of quartz and moganite (a polymorph of quartz). Quartz and moganite have differently shaped crystals, and in the case of chalcedony, the crystals are so small they can even be difficult to discern under low magnification.
This pendant is 58x23mm, and set in sterling silver.
