The history of Green Chalcedony
Green Chalcedony is a very hard stone and dates back to 32,000 BC in Central Australia where it was used in tool making. The Greeks and Romans carved the stones into cameos and it was also used for seal impressions because hot wax would not stick to the stone.
Chalcedony has been prized for its healing properties for many thousands of years. It was believed in ancient times that a chalice made from silver and lined with Chalcedony would prevent poisoning.
The name of the stone comes from the Latin word “chalcedonius” and is named after the Roman province of Chalcedon, known today as Kadikoy located in present-day Turkey.
Chalcedony has been found in Brazil, India, Mexico, Morocco, the USA, Namibia, New Zealand, Russia, and Turkey.
