History of Carnelian
In ancient Roman times carnelian gemstones were used to make signet rings used for imprinting a seal with wax on important documents. One of the lesser known qualities of carnelian is that hot wax doesn't stick to it.
Romans wore rings for many different reasons. In the first and second centuries Roman men often wore a ring on each finger, and some of those were used for sealing and authenticating documents with their individual identification engraved on the gem stone signet ring. This is where the phrase "seal of approval" comes from. The carved gemstone rings were called "intaglio," meaning to carve, cut, or incise.
