Chalcedony - Blue - 'A' 1.5cm Tumbled StoneChalcedony Blue 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.

Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, composed of very fine inter growths of the minerals quartz and moganite. These are both silica minerals, but they differ in that quartz has a trigonal crystal structure, while moganite is monoclinic.

Chalcedony has a waxy luster, and may be semitransparent or translucent. It can assume a wide range of colour, but those most commonly seen are white to gray, greyish-blue or a shade of brown ranging from pale to nearly black.

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.

Chalcedony is said to be a powerful cleanser, including open sores. It may foster the maternal instinct and increases lactation, improves, mineral assimilation, and may combat minerals buildup in veins. Chalcedony may lessens the effects of dementia and senility. This stone increases physical energy. It may balances body, emotions, mind and spirit and heals the eyes, gallbladder, bones, spleen, blood and circulatory system.

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)
