Chalcedony has a silky luster, and is often semitransparent or translucent, which creates a glowing look, especially in the watery blues and green tones. It does assume a wide range of colors - white, blue, green to pink shades.
The name appears first in Pliny the Elder's Naturalis Historia as a term for a translucid kind of Jaspis Chalcedony.
Known in ancient times as the Speaker's Stone, the Roman emperor Cicero is said to have worn a chalcedony necklace as a reminder of the power of the spoken word. It is said to soothe and restore balance.
Our customers enjoy Chalcedony jewelry for a simple fact - it is very beautiful!
