A type of chalcedony, carnelian is a brownish-red mineral similar to sard that is colored by impurities of iron. Its color can vary greatly from pale orange to an intense, almost black coloration.

The names carnelian and sard are often used interchangeably, but they can be used to describe distinct subvarieties. Carnelian, for example, is a softer gem that tends to have lighter coloration with shades ranging from orange to reddish brown. Sard is a harder, duller or hackly (having the appearance of something that has been hacked, ie jagged), and has darker colorations with shades ranging from deep reddish brown to almost black.
