More about Chalcedony

Historical record illustrates that chalcedony is one of the oldest used hard materials by humans. Chalcedony was shaped into everything from arrowheads to cups and bowls. Our chalcedony beads are a tranquil, bluish-white color. Some portions of the beads are milky and opaque, while other portions are almost transparent. A few might feature light orange inclusions. The soft color of these chalcedony beads goes wonderfully with freshwater pearls.

In general, Chalcedony is a microcrystalline variety of quartz. In its purest form, chalcedony is a translucent white color. However, it often contains microscopic traces of other minerals that give it a variety of colors. For example, carnelian is a variety of chalcedony that has a reddish-orange color due to the presence of iron oxide. Most gemstones on the market called chalcedony are a white-blue coloration.

Chalcedony has been associated with health since at least the European Renaissance. Today, it is still said to have a positive effect on human health, specifically mental health and fighting depression.
