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 color of the rainbow. Soothing, calming Chalcedony is great for promoting a sense of peace and joy. Chalcedony helps to relieve one of negative emotions, bringing a greater sense of overall happiness into one's life.
All Chalcedonies are thought to absorb negativity and promote harmony. Chalcedony is a stone of Brotherhood. It promotes group stability, alleviates hostility, increases physical energy and balances the body, emotions, mind and spirit.
