This pendant features a cabochon of natural pink chalcedony. The raw cab measures 1.05 x 0.83 inches (2.68 x 2.13 cm). It is set in sterling silver.

Chalcedony is a gemstone which has been valued since the most ancient reaches of human history, first as a material to make tools and later as a gemstone. It was a popular jewelry stone in a variety of ancient cultures, often used for carvings and seals, both because it is tough and easy to work and also because of its great beauty. It comes in a range of colors and patterns, but the most treasured varieties show solid, translucent color with no banding.

Texas Springs, Nevada is a locale famed for its fine agates and chalcedonies. They formed as casts of petrified wood. Unlike most petrified wood, however, they are a beautiful, translucent gel on the inside rather than being opaque and showing wood patterning. While some of them have banding or a white or brown color, the finest examples are a beautiful, translucent peach to pink. This stone is a great example. I got it as a full limb cast, and sliced it into slabs. Its inside was as beautiful as it looked on the surface, with a striking slightly light peachy pink. I cut it myself as a cabochon.
