Carnelian, also called cornelian, is a translucent, semiprecious variety of the silica mineral chalcedony that owes its red to reddish-brown colour to colloidally dispersed hematite (iron oxide). It is a close relative of sard, differing only in the shade of red. It is most commonly found in Indonesia, Brazil, India, Russia, and Germany.
Vermeil is another term for gilt. Van Peterson vermeil jewellery is made with sterling silver and coated in either 18ct yellow or rose gold.
