Magickal Uses: Chalcedony, in common with many other stones, banishes fear, hysteria, depression, mental illness, and sadness. It also promotes calm and peaceful feelings when worn or held in the hand.
In the 16th century it was prescribed by magicians to dissolve illusions and fantasies. For this purpose it was pierced and hung around the neck.
Worn to bed or placed beneath the pillow, chalcedony drives away nightmares, night visions and fears of the dark.
As a protective stone, chalcedony guards its bearer during times of
political revolution and while traveling. It is also used to ward off
psychic attack and negative magick. Chalcedony prevents accidents if worn.
In Renaissance magic the chalcedony was engraved with the figures of a man with his right hand upraised. This was worn for success in lawsuits as well as for health and safety.
The stone is used for beauty, strength, energy and success in all
undertakings, and in Italy, mothers wear beats of white chalcedony to
increase lactation. An arrowhead carved of chalcedony is worn and carried for luck.
