Chalcedony - Copper - Tumbled Stone
Chalcedony is a silicon dioxide mineral composed of submicroscopic Quartz grains, coloured and sometimes patterned by other pigmenting minerals.
Chalcedony differs from Jasper in that the Quartz is arranged in fibrous layers rather than the sugar-like grains found in Jasper.
Though the Quartz fibres in Chalcedony are parallel and perpendicular to the surface, macroscopically it displays radiating stalactite, grape like or kidney shapes.
Chalcedony deposits are distributed all over the Earth, especially in India, Brazil, Madagascar and Turkey. Chalcedonies range widely in colour, pattern, location of origin and name.

The name chalcedony comes from the Latin chalcedonius (alternatively spelled calchedonius). The name appears in Pliny the Elder’s Naturalis Historia as a term for a translucid kind of Jaspis. The name is probably derived from the town Chalcedon in Asia Minor.


Copper Chalcedony tumbled to a smooth finish, an ideal pocket size stone, small enough to carry around with you. Tumble Stones can also be placed around the home for their energies or can just be nice decorative items.

Here at London Fossils Crystals I sell a wide range of Tumble Stones  

Tumble stones are so called because a number of stones of similar sizes are placed in a barrel which is rotated (tumbled) at a speed and after a time between 3 - 5 weeks the stones are polished from rough to smooth. 
(The Tumble stones we sell, have not been tumbled by ourselves)
