Chalcedony is known as the Speaker’s Stone, the stone of one who must measure his words. It encourages reflection and meditation, its gentle radiance preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret.
Chalcedony is, essentially, a group of cryptocrystalline quartz minerals that form in masses (sometimes in geodes), that may be opaque or translucent, depending on various inclusions. Varieties of Chalcedony include Agate, Carnelian, Aventurine, Jasper, Onyx, Bloodstone and Chrysoprase. Chalcedony gemstones usually come in Blue, Pink, Red or White, while varieties are almost any colour of the rainbow.
