Chalcedony is one of the earliest jewels used for jewellery production. Its main origin is Uruguay or India. Van Cleef & Arpels selected red chalcedony from Idar-Oberstein in Germany, and red chalcedony from Brazil, because the chalcedony in these areas has more magnificent and unique colors. Van Cleef & Arpels insists on the use of highly polished gemstones. Because of its special microcrystalline structure, such chalcedony is extremely rare.
