Combining It With Other Stones

Hold Carnelian stones and at the same time put Smokey Quartz at the base chakra. Smokey Quartz is a strong spiritual grounding stone, and the added energy of the Carnelian will create a strong flow of excess energy down. 

This is an excellent combination to ground you, as it helps the excess energy to flow down, via the lower chakras to the earth star chakra.

Combined with either Green Aventurine or with Green Calcite, it will strengthen the liver and pancreas, gall bladder and kidneys. It brings healing energy to the organs in the area of the lower body within the sacral chakra. 

It is excellent to combine with many of the high vibration crystal energy. Use Carnelian at the solar plexus or power chakra then add in Moldavite at the heart chakra or third eye.

Use Phenacite at the third eye and use either Petalite or Danburite above the head at the soul star chakra, to take your energy up to the higher transpersonal chakras.

To stimulate male sexual energy combine it with Iron Pyrite, Orange Calcite, Bustamite, Zincite, Tiffany Stone, Crocoite or Black Andradite Garnet.
