Oftentimes Chalcedony can be found alongside Agate in weathering volcanic rocks. Chalcedony can also at times be found within sedimentary rocks, but it is very rare for it to be found in either igneous or metamorphic rocks.

Chalcedony has been around for many years; it was mainly utilized for tool making dating back as early as 32,000 BP.
