Chalcedony is considered to be a variety of Quartz. It is either transparent, translucent, or opaque. It occurs as stalactites, in botryoidal form, and in the lining of cavities of rocks, and is a cryptocrystalline variety of Quartz which also occurs as concretionary masses of this fine-grained cryptocrystalline Quartz. It occasionally contains a small amount of Opal. The mineral was first reported in 1837 by J.D. Dana and was named for “Chalcedonius” which was, in 1546 coined by G. Agricola.
This mineral was used as a sacred stone by the American Indians, promoting stability within the ceremonial activities of the tribes.
Chalcedony has successfully been used to provide a pathway for receiving thought transmissions. This crystal can be useful for balancing the energy of the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. It alleviates hostilities, irritability, and emotional melancholy and further enhances generosity, responsiveness, and receptivity.
Chalcedony is a “stone to encourage brotherhood among all”. It symbolizes benevolence and good will, the benevolence stemming from the nurturing energy within the stone. It has also been shown to initiate “miracles” – that one would (given self limitations) never dream possible.
