Free standing piece of blue chalcedony, exceptional colour and a great display piece.
Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline variety of the mineral quartz which in its purest form tends to be white or grey, a subtle shade of blue or even brown. It's not unusual for this mineral to feature microscopic inclusions of other minerals and it's these which either enhance the colour of the stone or change it completely.
Chalcedony has been known to man for thousands of years and was once used for weapons and tools. There are many different varieties of this mineral some of which include agate, onyx, flint, bloodstone, aventurine, carnelian and chrysoprase to name just a few.
This polished piece of chalcedony was carefully chosen by one of our team and it's sure to add a splash of colour to any collection of rocks and minerals.
