Chalcedony is a form of silica (silicon dioxide) made up of quartz and moganite. It may be semi-transparent or translucent and comes in a variety of colors known by different names including agate, aventurine, carnelian, chrysoprase, bloodstone, mtorolite, onyx and moss agate.


Chalcedony is believed to enhance mental clarity and promote positive thinking, making it a valuable tool for harnessing the power of the mind.

Chalcedony’s soothing energy is said to aid in physical healing by alleviating ailments like sore throats and digestive issues.

In the realm of magic, chalcedony is celebrated for its ability to amplify intentions and enhance communication with spirits and the divine.

Whether used for meditation, protection, or manifesting desires, chalcedony is a versatile and enchanting companion for those on a magical journey.

History and Folklore

Chalcedony in its various forms has been used since the bronze age to create various decorative pieces. Since it doesn’t stick to wax, it makes excellent seals.

Chalcedony in Healing and Magic

Chalcedony is ruled by the moon and the element of water. Its energy is female or receptive in nature. It is best held or worn on the hand as a ring or bracelet.


Chalcedony may be used to banish fear, hysteria, depression and sadness and to promote peaceful and generous feelings. It is used to see past illusions and to overcome fear of the dark and dispel night terrors (wear around the neck for this).


Beads of white chalcedony may be worn to increase lactation.

Chalcedony may be used for protection during times of political upheaval and to prevent accidents while traveling. It also wards against psychic attack and hexes. Engraved with the image of a man with an upraised hand, chalcedony may be worn to ensure a favorable outcome to a civil court case.
