Technically, chalcedony is the gemological term applicable for all varieties of quartz in cryptocrystalline form, which can occur in a wide range of different colors, sizes and patterns. However today, the term, ‘chalcedony’, is most often used in reference to a very specific type of cryptocrystalline quartz, often referred to as ‘actual chalcedony’. To minimize confusion, other varieties of cryptocrystalline quartz are traded under their own individual trade names, such as ‘banded agate’, ‘carnelian’ or ‘jasper’. The gemstone ‘chalcedony’ is distinguished by translucency and its solid. As the defining mineral for 7 on the Mohs scale, chalcedony quartz is known to set the standard when it comes to gemstone hardness for jewelry gemstones. The actual name ‘chalcedony’ originated from the latin word ‘Chalcedonius’, which is thought to be derived from ‘Chalcedon’, an ancient seaport of Asia Minor, now Kadikoy, Turkey. Chalcedony is known to take an excellent polish, in fact, after a prolonged polish, some chalcedony varieties can exhibit a glow that seems to emanate from within. Chalcedony quartz is without a doubt one of the most significant materials of all time. An extremely rare variety of Yellow Chalcedony is found in Garut West Java of Indonesia. Yellow Chalcedony is a “Stone of Optimism.” Chalcedony protects against negative influences, increases energy and promotes emotional balance. It absorbs negativity and dissipates it, allowing you to feel the warmth of inner-stability and self-assurance.
