Carnelian crystal is from the Chalcedony family. This gemstone is formed due to inter growth of two silica minerals which are known as quartz and moganite. It ranges from somewhat translucent to opaque red coloration with orange and brown tones. These variations in the color depend on the mineral composition within the stones. The predominantly orange/red crystals get their color from iron oxide impurities.
