Facets on the surface of this cushion red chalcedony catch the light, giving the cabochon a distinctive look. This stone is perfectly suited to vintage-style designs and pairs especially well with gold and other yellow metal settings.

A compact microcrystalline quartz, chalcedony (pronounced "cal-SID-nee") is a tough, durable stone that is ideal for carving, cabochons, and beads. Pure chalcedony is white; individual chalcedonies are labeled by the colors that come from trace minerals. Most varieties of chalcedony are dyed to enhance their color. The color of red dyed chalcedony can range from pinkish-red to medium-red.

The cushion cut is a classic style; it combines features of the oval cut with a deep cut and large facets.
