This pendant features a cabochon of natural pink chalcedony. It measures 1.32 x 0.76 inches (3.37 x 1.94 cm). It is set in solid 14k yellow gold.

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 some of the most highly valued material shows solid, translucent color with no banding.

Texas Springs, Nevada is a locale famed for its fine agates and chalcedonies. They formed in the space left by limbs of wood. Unlike normal petrified wood, which preserves grain and internal details of the wood, these stones are a pure, gel chalcedony. Most rough produced from this locale have opaque white centers, but the very best stones from this locale are an even, translucent pink with a rich hue.

This stone is a great example. I managed to source some top quality rough, and sawed and cut this stone myself.

Note that it is very common for chalcedony cabochons to be artificially dyed--because of this I always source my own rough and either cut it myself or have it cut by a good friend of mine so I can be 100% sure that my chalcedonies are natural and untreated gems.
