Blue Chalcedony Specimen | Large

Chalcedony stones are one of the most widespread varieties of quartz in the world. Many agates, jaspers, and even fossils are considered to be this type of gemstone. They are naturally nurturing, often serving as good companion stones for groups seeking to form strong, deep bonds with each other. They are also natural harmonizers that help align one’s energies, allowing one to be more generous and enjoyable. It should be noted that the term chalcedony can refer to both the variety of quartz and a specific blue-and-white gemstone known as Blue Chalcedony (see photo).

Historical Folklore

Chalcedony is believed to be named for the Ancient Greek city of Chalcedon.

The High Priest of the Israelite’s holy breastplate supposedly contained blue chalcedony.

Blue chalcedony has long been considered a boon for public speakers, dating back to Ancient Roman times.

Geology

Chalcedony stones are a type of cryptocrystalline mineral formed from quartz and morganite. As previously stated, some agates, jaspers, and other gemstones are considered to be part of this group. They can be found worldwide.
