Chalcedony
Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine inter-growths of quartz and morganite. The name chalcedony comes from the Latin chalcedonius, and potentially after the name of the town Chalcedon in Asia Minor. Chalcedony comes in many varieties, more notable forms of chalcedony are agate, aventurine, carnelian, chrysoprase, and onyx. Chalcedony artifacts have been recovered dating back to 1800 B.C. Depending on the variety, chalcedony can activate any of the chakras, and can be used to heal both the mind and body.
