The only reason why we have added this chalcedony pendant to our Bargain Basement is because there is a circular mark on the back of the gemstone which we believe was caused by a sticky label that should never have been put on the stone in the first place. Despite trying to remove it with a non chemical solution, the mark remains hence we do not want to damage the stone for something that can't even be seen when the pendant is being worn.
This bulbous subtle blue coloured cabochon is best described as having a vitreous lustre which refers to the way that it reflects light. It's translucent with a glass-like texture and appearance and its colour changes slightly depending on the angle of the light.
Chalcedony quartz as it's also sometimes known has crystals which are microscopic hence cannot be seen with the naked eye. Although white in its purest form, the vast majority of chalcedony occurs with impurities of other minerals and it's these which bring about the change in colour.
A popular gemstone for use in jewellery, it's relatively hard which makes it a good material to work with.
Crafted by hand for Stone Mania in a fine sterling silver setting, this chunky chalcedony pendant is a great piece of ladies jewellery at a totally unbeatable price.
