Carnelian in culture
- The Carnelian Room was a luxury restaurant that was once located on the 52nd (top) floor of the 555 California Street Building, formerly the Bank of America Center, in San Francisco, California. The average cost of an entree there was $50 to $75. (The restaurant was so named because 555 California Street is a building whose outer cladding is composed of carnelian colored granite.) The restaurant went out of business on 31 December 2009 because of the continuing impact of the 2008 economic crisis on the United States economy.
