gemstone properties: It was once believed that Chalcedony was a fibrous variety of cryptocrystalline quartz, although more recently the International Mineralogical Association has officially recognized this stone to contain monoclinic polymorph of quartz known commonly as Morganite. The percentage of Morganite would typically range from less than 5% to as much as 15%. And although once thought that this content was a misnomer, it is now scientifically proven.
The Chalcedony is a child of the Quartz family, sibling to Amethyst, Ametrine Aventurine, Citrine (as well as others) and is the parent of Agates, Bloodstone, Chrysoprase, Jaspers and Onyx…it sometimes have been known to contain trace amounts of Opal as well.
