Chalcedony is a mineral that combines several subspecies of gemstones. Here are chrysoprase, carnelian, agate, onyx, sardonyx… Each of them has its own distinctive features, but there is much in common.
Its name is chalcedony due to the ancient city on the coast of the Sea of Marmara – Chalcedon. This transparent, layered stone was popular in the East from old times. So, Mongols believed that chalcedony gives joy and chases sorrow. And in the Hindu scriptures, blue stones were considered the embodiment of the divine consciousness. Modern esotericists and astrologers talk about the ability of this mineral to restore the energy balance – remove excess emotions, add lacking strength, and so on.
Сhalcedony is a gemstone-talisman of 5 lunar day, the time of decisive actions and concentration on the goal. This means that chalcedony has the greatest power in the fifth day after New Moon, and all the rituals with it will be more effective at this time.

The rules for choosing and working with chalcedony
It is necessary to admit: this mineral is wayward and not so simple in circulation. To use chalcedony magical properties for your happiness, you need to follow several important rules:
- Give preference to stones with bright, juicy color, transparent, not cloudy. Such characteristics indicate the strength and powerful energy of chalcedony, which it will be able to share with you.
- Note that chalcedony of different types and colors have several different abilities and vectors of influence. So, the red stone inclines its owner to frankness and active actions; orange one patronizes the artists; green – teaches patience; blue – sharpens intuition and makes thinking more productive.
- Fractures and cracks in chalcedony are places of accumulation and storage of information that a stone receives from the surrounding space. The more of them, the more knowledge this mineral will be able to store. Therefore, for rituals associated with the transfer and receipt of any knowledge, it is worth choosing a pebble with a lot of “voids” inside.
- Do not keep chalcedony on your body for too long. If the stone has already helped you to normalize your mental state, get out of depression and get rid of fears, take it off for a little while. Otherwise, the process will start in the opposite direction. It is a balance stone, and it will not tolerate a long emotional upsurge of the owner just like lingering apathy.
