Similar to Peach Moonstone, Blue Chalcedony has a very gentle energy. It is almost ethereal, enhancing the connection between yourself and those on the other side who have important messages to share with you.
A high energy stone, this crystal allows contact with only those spirits or ancestors who are working for your highest good and protects you from any negative energies. Blue Chalcedony has a sweet energy and enhances charm and likeability. It’s a great stone for those who need to work closely with others in a group, or those who need to assume leadership positions.

Blue Chalcedony is a stone of balance, which can counteract any scattered tendencies, as sometimes we want to have things both ways. Compromise and generosity, chalcedony’s gifts, encourage our better side. The stone fosters openness, agreeability, and personal charm. Its milky appearance suggests some of the properties historically associated with it. For example, Historically, Italian women traditionally wore chalcedony beads after childbirth for successful lactation. Chalcedony — especially the common blue kind — has a cool, soft quality that soothes intense energy of all kinds.
More Information About Chalcedony:
The name chalcedony (pronounced “kal-SEH-duh-nee”) is a blanket term for many varieties of cryptocrystalline (small-grained) Quartz. Often when jewelers and gemologists talk about chalcedony, they mean the white-to-blue variety, but we’ve also seen lovely specimens (like Black Mystic Chalcedony).
Chalcedony exists in almost every color. In fact, many forms of Quartz are technically also forms of chalcedony: jaspers, agates, onyx — even petrified wood! The reason for this is that when Earth’s geological activity breaks up her abundant supply of quartz, small crystals often morph into something new, picking up all kinds of minerals and other stuff in the process. The large crystalline pieces are varieties of Quartz, the banded varieties are Agates, the opaque varieties are Jaspers, and the translucent varieties without banding are Chalcedony (generally speaking).
