Chalcedony encourages reflection and meditation, its subtle energy preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret. Chalcedony can absorb negative energy and dissipate it before it can be passed on. It promotes opening the mind to new ideas and instilling feelings of benevolence and generosity.
