“Carnelian is a Talisman,

It brings good luck to child and man;

If resting on an onyx ground,

A sacred kiss imprint when found.

It drives away all evil things;

To thee and thine protection brings.

The Name of Allah, king of kings,

If graven on this stone, indeed,

will move to love and doughty deed.

From such a gem a woman gains

Sweet hope and comfort in her pains.”
