Scarlet combines the energy of the pure red ray and the exuberance and joy of the orange in a precious gift of nature. Scarlet is the color of strength and vitality, both physical and spiritual.
Athletes, soldiers, workers, and all for whom physical strength is vital can benefit from the rays of a scarlet crystal. Workout efforts can be enhanced and an overall increase in vitality will be observed with careful use of scarlet crystals. Weight lifters, body builders, and track and field competitors can gain significantly from these crystals.
Scarlet crystals are one of the natural birthstones of those born in the first month of autumn (September 23–October 21).
Red Chalcedony stones are used in devotions to Clota: Goddess of the River Cldye; and Gaia, the Greek Earth Mother.

Red Chalcedony, with their Scarlet Color Ray of Influence are associated with the First Chakra, the Base Chakra which is located at the base of the spine and radiating through the legs and feet. This is the grounding Chakra and deals with the health of the physical body. When it is out of balance you will feel flighty and physically adrift. This Red Chalcedony can be used effectively in crystal healing when the Base Chakra is in need of realignment.
Red Chalcedony crystals have Fire energy and are used in the south area of a home or room. Fire elemental energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature.
Red Chalcedony, Melody tells us in Love is in the Earth, is a stone brotherhood, sacred to several tribes of Native Americans. It promotes benevolence and good will. Judy Hall in The Crystal Bible agrees and notes that it removes hostility and eases self doubt. Robert Simmons notes in The Book of Stones that Red Chalcedony is a calming stone, useful for stimulating telepathy and all types of communications with the spirit world. Naisha Ahsian in the same book finds Red Chalcedony is excellent for channelling work, and that it brings a calming effect in the presence of anger.
