30-Day Gemsona Challenge, Day 1: Introductions!

Chalcedony (pronounced CAL-sa-doe-nee) is a healer with the power to calm and soothe other gems, if they allow her to. She loves to meet people and learn things, and always looks for a peaceful solution rather than fighting.  It seems she used to be some kind of diplomat, but she’s been travelling the stars alone for many thousands of years now…

finished colors for chalcedony! it took a lot of experimenting but i’m very happy with how she’s turned out. just for fun, i also did one with a pink chalcedony palette.

Blue Chalcedony/ Blue Holy Agate on Matrix

This beautiful rock resembles a small cave of captured blue clouds and its essence is very much a soothing stone. Its blue energy emits a feeling of as if one were to hold an ice pack to an injury, helping one heal any emotional wounds. It offers calm and positivity, helping one be in the ‘now’, rather than worrying what might (or might not!) be. It’s a wonderful stone for assisting with communication and is particularly good for singers!

This rough piece is one of a few pieces we have chosen to appear at the Venusrox showroom and we hope you can enjoy peering into this small haven of blue.
