Chalcedony is a type of quartz that is found in a microcrystalline form. It is named after Chalcedon, a district in Istanbul, Turkey. The word "chalcedony" comes from the Latin word "chalcedonies," which was used by Pliny the Elder in Naturalis Historia to describe a transparent kind of jasper. Chalcedony is dense and has a waxy luster. It can be semitransparent or translucent, but never completely transparent. It can come in many colors, such as white, gray, blue, brown, black, or even colorless. When exposed to ultraviolet light, chalcedony may show a green fluorescence.

Chalcedony is a stone with a long history dating back to 32,000 BP. It was originally used for tool-making but later became popular for creating seal impressions because of its heat resistance. Native Americans believed Chalcedony to be a sacred stone, often using it in ceremonial activities. In the 19th century, Idar-Oberstein in Germany was the largest processing center for Chalcedony in the world. But nowadays, Chalcedony comes from various parts of the world such as India, Iceland, Brazil, Mexico, Italy, Russia, Egypt, Uruguay, and the United States.

Chalcedony minerals are commonly found in weathered volcanic rocks. It can also be found in sedimentary rocks, but it is very rare for it to be found in either igneous or metamorphic rocks. Chalcedony is part of the quartz family and comes in many different varieties such as agates, bloodstones, carnelians, and chrysoprases. In crystal beliefs, it is said that Chalcedony promotes emotional balance and stamina/endurance, and alleviates hostilities and feelings of depression.
