Chakra: Root
Chalcedony is a crystal that absorbs negativity and leaves calmness where it has been. It is a form of quartz much like agate, bloodstone, carnelian, chrysoprase, Jasper and onyx. Chalcedony occurs in many different shapes and colors. It carries with it the healing power of quartz but not the amplifying energy. The color will indicate on which chakra it will be most effective.

Chalcedony brings the body, mind, emotions and spirit into harmony. As it absorbs negativity it encourages brotherhood and good will. Chalcedony turns the “blues” into joy. It absorbs negative thoughts and emotions, resulting in reduced fear, hysteria, depression, mental illness and sadness. It releases self-doubt. It also reduces stress in the eyes.

Because it absorbs negativity so easily, Chalcedony should be cleansed frequently. The usual methods of cleansing, running water, sunlight, moonlight, placing it in an amethyst geode, etc. are all appropriate. Since it can be fragile, I wouldn’t bury it in the ground.

An effective elixir can be made with Chalcedony. Place a clean stone with no dirt or polish on it in a large clear container of water. Put it outside, covered to keep dust out, or inside in direct sunlight on a windowsill for one to three days. This elixir is wonderful in treating tonsils, vocal cords and neck problems. It will also protect against infections and inflammations.
