Chalcedony: Gems for Protection, Sustenance and Beauty

Named after an ancient town on the banks of the Bosporus, chalcedony is porous silica with intergrowths of quartz and morganite minerals. The earliest recorded use of chalcedony was for projectile points, knives, tools, and containers such as cups and bowls. Man-made weapons and tools from varieties of chalcedony are highlights in Stone Age museum exhibits.

Today, chalcedony is a popular gemstone as the material is beautiful, abundant, durable, and reasonably priced with a nearly unlimited variability. Legend has it that a thief bound for execution may find freedom and good luck if he slips a chalcedony under his tongue.

Ross-Simons' Chalcedony Jewelry

Our jewelry designers have a special place in their hearts for chalcedony, and the more famous members of the chalcedony family. Bloodstones, carnelian, onyx and agates are prized for their variety of color and milky luster. Chalcedony takes well to carving and some of our finest chalcedony jewelry is presented in beaded necklaces.

The milky blue tones of the gem set up perfectly with turquoise and lapis, and chalcedony necklaces and chalcedony earrings work perfectly with blue jeans rings and sun dresses. Indeed the blue overtones are delightful when paired with sterling silver, and some of our most popular chalcedony rings are presented in sterling for an elegant, but casual appeal.

Chalcedony is relatively durable, rating 6-7 on the Mohs scale and is found in various forms the world-over.

Chalcedony Jewelry Care & Handling

While chalcedony is reasonably durable, it can take on scratches so care requires no more than a gentle polish with a soft cloth. Chalcedony's color can be influenced by sunlight and Ross-Simons recommends storage away from direct light. We suggest you keep your chalcedony in your Ross-Simons presentation box when not in use.
