About Wild Melon Chalcedony(TM) Very strong, vibrant color...a durable gemstone...a new gemstone discovery from a new mine...takes a good polish...available in wide range of sizes and contemporary jewelry designs... great prices... all factors that point toward our customers falling in love with this new gem-just like our gemstone and jewelry buying teams did the first time they saw it! Throughout time, pink chalcedony has never been available in non-dyed material with a color this beautiful. Pink chalcedony NEVER looked this good--until now. Think about the pink chalcedony stones you've seen offered by retailers-its color is typically light to medium pink and it's been dyed. But not with Wild Melon Chalcedony(TM) -- the material is heated just long enough to remove the components that make the color less desirable. And this treatment is no different than with many of the world's most beloved gemstones that have been heated: ruby, sapphire, amethyst, tanzanite...and the list goes on and on. Pink chalcedony never looked so appealing - that is, until Wild Melon Chalcedony(TM) made its debut at JTV! Our vendor, who specializes in quartz gemstones, tells us that Wild Melon Chalcedony(TM) was only discovered a little more than one short year ago and was brought to one of our Senior Gemstone Buyers, George Williams, to review at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. Needless to say, George was excited to learn of this beautiful new gem from Brazil and was quick to negotiate a deal with the vendor. He also learned that the vendor only hand selects and purchases the finest rough material from the mine-it's nothing but the best quality gems for our customers! Experience (over 18 years worth) tells us that our customers like pink gems, whether it's pink opal, pink topaz, pink sapphire, etc. So we encourage you to add this pastel gem to your gemstone or jewelry collection today!
