As the natural ruler of the Zodiac, the lion has a larger-than-life personality. The sun lights up for openhearted Leo and everyone around them. From fire-orange to brownish-red, Carnelian can assist in getting the mind out of mental ruts and back on track for success. It bolsters ambition and drive, reminding the wearer of future goals—hence a powerful decision-making tool. Fire Agate promotes positive expression for an abundant storehouse of energy, while Sunstone has an uplifting spiritual quality that resonates with the generosity and enthusiasm of Leo, bringing out their inherent leadership qualities.
